It just seems a shame to make pomander balls out of excellent naval oranges. There are lots of salad recipes that use great tasting oranges, there is ambrosia too. Many Asian dishes use oranges with chicken. You could extend their fresh life by refrigerating most of them and taking out only what you can use in a week. There is the drink Orange Julius. I used to love to get that in the mall. I try to always serve fruit with breakfast of ham and eggs etc.including oranges. Hope this gets your thots in motion.
Thanks for all your good ideas. My DH did make and freeze some orange juice. Still have a fridge drawer full. Tonight I'm making a Moroccan dinner with a salad recipe with oranges and orange juice. I try to find recipes to use with foods I have on hand. Hope DH does not "freak" over green salad with oranges !!
That sounds Yum-o for summer. Still have lots of oranges in the fridge. They keep well. The Moroccan salad with the oranges & juice was very good BTW. DH liked it ...who knew???
Have bookmarked the recipe you posted.
Thank you so much!!
O.K. found the recipe for the salad. I'm not too techy so I'm not able to "cut &past" the web address. Probably would make my head explode if I tried to figure it out today, another day perhaps. Having said all that if you DM your email address I am able to send it to you. One reason I used this recipe was it called for Orange Blossom Water.
I love to try exotic ings, which I pick up at outlet type grocery stores. Also used the OBW for a lovely mojito.
We put some orange pieces out for the Orioles that were visiting our Humming Bird feeder. They ignored the oranges. As far as canning oranges...we live in California, no need to can them as we have them most of the year, thank's anyway.
Try an orange "half" for the Orioles rather than pieces and plop a little grape jelly on top. If they eat enough to leave a depression, add more jelly. They love grape jelly and will line up to get some.
I eventually end up with a hollowed out orange peel which I fill with more jelly, then I start the process all over again.
