Smoking Bishop is almost synonymous with Christmas. At one time this was traditionally heated with a red hot poker.


  • 6 Seville oranges
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • cloves
  • 2 pints strong cheap red wine
  • 1 bottle ruby port
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Bake the oranges in a medium oven for about 20 minutes.
  2. Stick cloves into the oranges.
  3. Put the now clove-stuck oranges into a large bowl.
  4. Pour the wine over them and add the sugar.
  5. Cover and leave in a warm place for 24 hours.
  6. Squeeze the juice from the oranges and mix it with the wine.
  7. Add the port and heat the mixture in a pan.
  8. Do not boil.
  9. Serve hot.
