To make the blood orange sauce, zest the blood oranges on a fine grater. Peel the oranges and segment them over a bowl so that none of the juice escapes. In a saucepan, place the zest, juice and sugar syrup and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the cream and simmer for a further minute or two. Remove from direct heat and add in the orange segments.
