This recipe is a huge hit with my dinner guests. It is a light and satisfying end to a meal. The whipped cream is essential to the success of the dessert. I squeeze with my hands the parts of the oranges left over after segmenting to get all the juice possible. This step gives a nice amount of liquid and adds a great orange taste to the mixture. The sugar syrup does seize after I add the orange juice. I just keep stirring (and yes, it can get a bit messy when you start stirring after the mixture seizes); most of the seized sugar quickly melts into the juice mixture. If clumps remain, I just let them slowly dissolve while the mixture is cooling.
It sounded so good! Alas, I too had the syrup turn into cardamom candy rather than the syrup it was supposed to be. It could be that I didn't add enough orange juice. The recipe is very vague as to how much to add (i.e., oranges can vary in the amount of juice they leave behind). I also found the cardamom flavor too strong for my liking. Perhaps adding more orange juice would resolve both issues. All in all, it was a little bit of a mess to clean up the hardened sugar, so I'm not likely to try this again until I see another review with a tried and true solution.
this taste good but I have tried several times and can not get syrup right. When I put orange juice in melted sugar it immediately hardens and I cannot get it to combine.
