Dry Oranges

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I bought a bag of oranges at Trader Joe's. They are incredibly dry... any ideas with something to do with them, besides returning them?

 

Thanks!

Cut them in sliced horizontally, dry them the rest of the way on purpose, and use them for natural decorations/ornaments/wreaths.  on ribbons

 

You could try using them in a bread or muffin recipe with walnuts or dried berries or both.  I've never used oranges in baking. 

 

You could cook them with a roast duck, maybe mix them into a rice and almond slivers stuffing.

 

Soak them in some kind of alcoholic beverage to add moisture (are they dry enough to absorb?) and then incorporate them into a pudding...

 

Use them mixed into a homemade vinaigrette salad dressing?

Candied orange peel?

Stick some cloves in them and use them as air freshener/decorations (or use in mulled cider)

Marmalade. I made a great batch with a box of clementines in December. (Kids were eating them like crazy, then stopped right after I bought another box).

I've bought those same oranges! :)

I made pitchers of tropical ice tea and just dropped the oranges in the pitcher for taste -- delicious!

Also, you could reconstitute them and add them to an Asian dish -- orange chicken.  Maybe add to some olive oil and let it soak for a bit, then use the oil in a stir fry or  .  Or throw them in the crockpot with just about any juicy dish for added flavor.  I like to make an lemon/caper chicken dish with white wine, and they'd be good in there, too.
