Citrus Ambrosia with Rosemary Syrup

Citrus Ambrosia with Rosemary Syrup (recipe follows) is oh so refreshing, providing a nice counterpoint to the heavier dishes we all love around the Christmas season. Feel free to add any fruit that suits your fancy. You cannot get this one wrong.

Here is my recipe:

Citrus Ambrosia:

2 large navel oranges, peeled and sectioned with a knife
1 large grapefruit, peeled and sectioned with a knife
1 large lime, peeled and sectioned with a knife
1/2 cup maraschino cherries
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Peel and section with a knife the oranges, the grapefruit and the lime, allowing juices to collect in bowl with fruit sections. Add cherries and coconut; stir to combine. Set aside.

Rosemary Infused Syrup:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 6-inch rosemary sprigs

Place water and sugar in small saucepan; bring water to a boil. Add rosemary and boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

Finishing Recipe: When syrup is completely cool, pour over citrus sections and gently toss. Store in refrigerator over night. Serve in compotes.
