 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       x            Large oranges
  150       ml           Sweet white wine
    1       T            Butter
    8       T            Sugar
  300       ml           Fresh-squeezed orange juice
    2       T            Whiskey (warmed)
   Carefully peel the oranges thinly.  Then with a sharp knife remove as much
   of the pith and white skin as possible, keeping the oranges intact.  Cut
   the thin peel into fine strips and cover with the wine.  Put the oranges
   into an ovenproof dish.  Put a little butter on top of each one, pressing
   it down gently, then sprinkle each one with a teaspoon of sugar.  Put into
   a 400F oven for 10 minutes or until the sugar caramelizes. 
   Meanwhile mix the orange juice with the sugar in a saucepan and bring to
   the boil.  Lower the heat and let it get syrupy, without stirring.  Add
   the orange peel and wine mixture and bring to the boil again, then cook
   rapidly to reduce and thicken slightly.   -- Take the oranges from the
   oven and if not fully browned, put under a moderate broiler for a few
   minutes.  Pour the warmed whisky over them and set it alight, over heat.
   As the flames die down, add the orange syrup and let it simmer for about 2
   minutes.  Serve at once;  or it can be served cold.
