Method

REDBELLY COMPOTE

1) Finely zest two Redbelly blood or­anges and re­serve zest for the pan­cakes. Juice two to give about 100ml juice, strain and set aside. Cut a small slice off the ends of each re­main­ing or­ange. Stand up on one end, and care­fully, fol­low­ing the con­tour of the redbelly, cut down to re­move the peel and the pith. Slice cross­wire into about 6-8 pieces each. Us­ing the tip of the knife, care­fully pick out any seeds. Place in a shal­low dish.

2) Com­bine honey, 2 tbs. water and star anise in a small saucepan over medium heat. Al­low to bub­ble up, then stir in redbelly juice. Re­move from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour over the redbelly slices and al­low to in­fuse. RI­COTTA PAN­CAKES
