Method

Put the sugar, orange zest and vanilla in a pan with 200ml water. Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then add the chestnuts and dried fruits. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 mins until the syrup is slightly thickened. Leave to cool, then serve with spoonfuls of mascarpone if you like.
