Zest the orange and then cut in half and add all to the pot.
Break up the cinnamon sticks and place in muslin with the star anise and split vanilla pods. Tie up and add to the pot.
Bring slowly to the boil, stir and let simmer until thick enough.
Taste, check it’s not too sweet or too sour and cool down.
