Cramel Oranges 
Ingredients
8 medium navel OR Cara Cara 
  oranges (about 4 1/2 pounds)
1 cup (7 ounces) white sugar
 2 cinnamon sticks or star anise poda
 2 tablespoons salted butter
* Juice two of the oranges to yield 3/4 cup juice.
 (If 2 oranges don’t yield enough juice, add water
  to measure 3/4 cup total. Set aside.
*Slice off the top and bottom  1/2 inch from each
 of the remaining 6 oranges. Stand each orange on
 one one of it flat ends and use a a sharp knife to cut
 down and around the fruit, following the contours of
 the flesh and peeling away all the skin and pith. Turn
 each orange on its side and thinly slice crosswise into
 rounds. In a 13-by-9 inch baking dish, arrange the rounds,
 slightly overlapping,in a ingle layer.
*In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, 1/4 cup of the 
 orange juice and the cinnamon or star anise. Bring to a
 boil over medium – high heat (this should take two or three
 minutes) and cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the
 sugar begins to color at the edges, another 3 to 5 minutes.
 (The bubbles should go from thin and frothy to thick and
  shiny.)
*Reduce the heat to medium low and cook,swirling the pan
  often until the sugar is coppery brown,1 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat,add the butter,then whisk until melted.
*Add a splash of the remaining orange and whisk until smooth (the mixture will steam and bubble vigorously), then add the remaining orange juice and whisk until fully incorporated. If the caramel separates and sticks to the bottom of the pan, return it to the heat and simmer until the hardened caramel dissolves.
*Pour the caramel evenly over the oranges, cover with plastic wrap,then refrigerate for at least 3 hours and upto 6 hours.
* Allowing the caramel to drip off into the baking dish,use a 
 slotted spoon to transfe rthe oranges to a serving platter or
 individual plates. Remove and discard the star anise or cinnamon from the caramel, then whisk to recombine and mix any juices. Pour the caramel over the oranges and serve. 
Start to finish: 40 minutes, plus chilling. Serves 6.
