Foolproof, voluptuous, (almost) no-cook dessert

I love this dessert and wanted to share!

Boil down a bottle of red wine with a lot of granulated sugar and some cinnamon sticks until it is reduced to a thick, dark syrup.

Meanwhile, completely remove the peel and pith from good, juicy oranges - hand-peeling won't do it, takes a knife. Slice into rounds. Cover and chill.

To serve, drizzle plenty of spiced wine syrup over chilled orange rounds and top with good vanilla ice cream.

When you take the time to get rid of every last morsel of flavour-deadening pith, oranges become surprisingly delicate and even luxurious. And you avoid entering food coma if you serve this at the end of a heavy meal.

(I like to make lots of the syrup and then reserve it for oatmeal and other things.)
