- Add orange juice, sugar and cardamom to the frying pan and cook, stirring, over low heat for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Add orange slices and grapefruit segments and toss to coat in syrup.
- Spoon fruit into serving dishes and drizzle with syrup. Serve sprinkled with toasted pine nuts and mint leaves.
TIPS: Spices are best stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Don’t keep them on the kitchen bench as heat, humidity and light all reduce their colour and flavour.You can use any grapefruit instead of ruby grapefruit.
