What to do with all these oranges?! - February 14th 2011, 06:33 PM

So, my in-laws went on a vacation to Florida this past week and sent us this citrus wreath thing... It has tons of oranges and grapefruit on it.

Wouldn't be a problem if my husband and I hadn't just bought a bunch of oranges and grapefruit the day before at the grocery

So now I have more oranges than we can eat and don't know what to do with them.

Any suggestions for recipes, creative uses, anything?

Thanks!

You could make orange juice or grapefruit juice with them, or search google for recipes that include either of them.

You can make smoothies, mandarin chicken roll ups, orange salad, etc.

Plusss there are a whole bunch of yummy cocktails that call for orange juice.

Mmmm, cocktails for when your son goes to bed! :P You could make a killer Sangria.

Oranges are pretty versatile. They pair great with chicken or pork (or turkey if you can come across it - I've had trouble finding it lately)... They work well in salads (I do a spring greens salad with craisins, oranges, strawberry slices, pecans, grilled chicken, and balsamic vinaigrette)...

Hope that helps?

Dude we have a lot of oranges too my mom bought a whole sack so we have like 60+. One thing my brother was trying earlier is making orange ice-cream but you have to have strong arms and time
The classic one as others have said it orange juice or dry oranges.
