2 1/4 litres (about 4 pints) water

Scrub the oranges, cut them in halves, squeeze out the juice and remove the pips. Cut the peel into strips and chop.
Place the chopped oranges, juice and water in a large saucepan; bring to the boil and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Make sure all of the added water is evaporated off.
Add the Sure-Set, stir over a low heat until it is dissolved then add the whiskey bring to the boil and boil vigorously for 4 minutes. (See 'Adding Sure-Set' for details on boiling and timing).
Allow to stand for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to distribute the peel.

Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
