For a quick and simple yet elegant dessert, consider a platter of sliced oranges. In this recipe, a drizzle of orange flower water, honey, lavender, and mint gives the fruit a sweet, floral character that’s especially nice when you want a light finish to a meal.

Although we call for Mandarin oranges here (we generally use medium-sized Satsuma or Page varieties), feel free to try any other sweet orange. The recipe is easy to double, triple, or increase as needed. It’s also lovely with cake!
