    Thinly slice three oranges with a knife or mandolin. Place slices in a large saucepan with the water, honey, and vanilla bean.

Note

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    If you can't tolerate coconut oil, feel free to substitute it with an oil/fat you can tolerate (eg. butter, ghee, etc).

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    If you can't tolerate almond flour but can tolerate another nut flour, please feel free to substitute it with that. Macadamias would be a delicious substitute.

    If you can't tolerate honey, please feel free to substitute with another sweetener you can tolerate. Maple syrup or liquid glucose would work well.
