Orange Compote

Image from The French Pastry Chef


Take oranges of medium size,
The peel remove I pray;
From each a round cut from one end
And scoop the seeds away.

Fill up the little cups thus formed
With strawberry-preserve —
That flavor mixed with orange-juice
Is more than most deserve.

Then top each orange with whipped cream,
A cap all soft and white,
Made up of puffs, while for rosettes
The strawberries gleam bright.

On separate plates the fruit then serve
With lady-fingers slim
And I’ve no doubt a king would say,
The dish was fit for him!
