Thread: Ideas needed involving oranges

    Default Ideas needed involving oranges

    Have far too many oranges

    Over 100 KG ( appears every ones trees are performing well )
    Like I needed some one to leave 6 more buckets of the things
    on the front veranda (NOT)

    Any ideas on how to use them up
    NOT involving jams and related type methods ?

    Other than squeezing and freezing the juice as sweet and tasty crop
    and hate to waste them and neighbours also have surplus this season
    so cant give them away even .


    Also considering trying to make own cointreau

    Looking for something people here have actually done rather than links
    that no one has actually used .

    Orange sherbet and fruit salad come to mind.

    Orange ice cream? orange marmalade? the extra work of the marmalade
    would be worth it in the amount of marmalade you would be able to keep
    indefinitely.

    My recipe is only for batches of 1 pound of orange pulp, after cooking
    the oranges, with about 220 (!?!) pounds of oranges that would be a lot
    of work.

    I've got a recipe for an orange cake that starts with boiling the
    whole oranges for about 40 minutes. Only uses a couple of oranges
    tho.

    A simple dessert is to cut the peel of an orange so you're down to the
    flesh and slice horizontally into thickish rounds. Sprinkle lightly
    with cinnamon. Done.

    Eat with your fingers, good after a heavy meal like enchiladas.

    sf - Have you ever candied the orange peels? If you haven't I suggest
    you get into a citric mood, buy some oranges to eat, than candy the
    peels. Definitely one of my favorite candies, and the sad thing is the
    modern woman has no clue what I'm talking about.

    It's not Cointreau and it doesn't take a huge amount, but try this
    recipe with orange instead of the lemon. I made it with clementines
    a few months ago and we loved it.


    Limoncello de Capri

    Take the grated zest (NO white pith!) from ~8 lemons and soak in 1 liter
    Everclear for 4 days at room temp. A microplane grater works well for
    this. (I think I used 15 clementines.)

    On the 4th day, mix 1 kg sugar with 1 liter water, simmer till
    dissolved, then cool. Once sugar mixture is cool, combine with
    Everclear/lemon mixture and mix well.

    Let sit 5 minutes, then strain out the lemon zest. Keep refrigerated or
    frozen, serve cold. Other citrus fruits may be substituted for lemons.
    Clementines are wonderful! I bet grapefruit would be delicious, too.

    Recipe may be easily scaled up or down as desired.

    Note: If you make this with vodka instead of Everclear, it will be
    slightly bitter, perhaps because some of the bitter compounds in the
    rind may be water soluble in the lower proof vodka.

    I'd suggest an orange cake, which I *have* made... but I didn't like
    it.

    I've done it many, many times Bob! I've also candied grapefruit and
    lemon peels. Orange is my favorite though. Have you ever dipped them
    in chocolate?

    Freeze them. Wash them and put them in a baggie in the freezer. Works
    for all citrus.

    Plenty of people are offering recipes, but whatever oranges you can not
    use, please take them to the food bank. The homeless and the hungry
    would love to have them.

    Becca I agree
    Nearest food bank is 250 Km Away
    we ALREADY have given given first pick to Food Bank
    SalvoĊ› and Saint Vinnies

    But you are correct and we bushies give heaps away
    and what goes around comes around is our our way out here .

    Actually the salvoes are on the way down next week for a community
    very understated and QUIET sort of bbq with some city folk who may
    enjoy a bit of the bush

    FWIW your post is *Very* appropriate .


    One never knows the other persons pain has been my experience

    Or dip the round slices in batter and fry them in butter. serve with
    a dusting of sugar. Orange fritters.
