Hi friends. My little orange tree has been BUSY. Today I finally picked up all the oranges off the ground under the tree and all the oranges that had fallen and rolled into the driveway. I filled my ginormous soup pot and large cardboard box entirely with oranges. I used my little twisty juicer and got most of the way thru the giant bucket - now I have a quart of so-so orange juice.

But what the heck to do with all these oranges and all this orange juice?!
So far I've thought of
Citrus Tahini Bowl from IDI
Orange Mojo Tofu from Viva Vegan
Black Bean and Orange Soup - world veg

Any other ideas?

When my lemon tree went crazy, I froze the juice in ice cube trays, and then popped out the frozen lemon juice cubes and stored in a ziplock bag. Now I can get out as much or as little juice as I need for a recipe and I don't have to buy lemons when my tree has no fruit ready. Just an idea for if you can't use it all.

At the risk of stating the obvious: fresh squeezed orange juice!

Awesome! Thanks for so many good ideas. This morning I juiced a huge bucket of them and took the juice to a party. It's not the sweetest juice, so we had to add a little sweetener or the kiddos.

Now to make muffins and candied peel and orange-tahini dressing and so on.

There's a lovely orange and date salad in Silk Road Cooking, aslo I think that book calls for orange juice/peel fairly often? Plus it's gorgeous and fun to flip through...

If they're not sweet but not really bitter either you could always add in a grapefruit for the proper marmalade tang.

Maybe an orange based stir fry sauce I'm sure any unused sauce could be frozen. I have an orange that sat in the drawer of my fridge for maybe 6 or so years and basically mummified, it dried completely without even rotting. I cut it open and it smells absolutely wonderful. I think I am going to grate it up and make tea with it so perhaps you could dehydrate some orange bits or slices for something like making tea or adding to tea.

Lots of great options. I would freeze the orange juice if you can't use it up fast. Some other ideas:

Happy juicing!

I tend to juice some tangerines along with my oranges to get it sweet and tart, and I'll also toss in some meyer lemon.

I got this recipe from a friend. It may sound weird but it is very good.
Peel the oranges and slice them like you would for a salad. Drizzle olive oil over the slices. Add some minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss everything to mix it up. Eat.

Something in the back of my brain is telling me you don't really drink, amey, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give sangria a shout out.

Cut into sections and freeze to make creamsicle smoothies. There is even a recipe for a walnut orange smoothie in 365 vegan smoothies that sounds strange but is like a wonderful milkshake, only healthy.

I sometimes use orange juice in place of plant milk in baking recipes. This works really well for quick breads like banana bread, holiday spice breads and even vanilla flavored cakes. The orange juice adds a lovely freshness and extra flavor dimension.

This is fascinating.

The carrot cake in VWAV calls for pineapple juice, you could substitute orange, I bet that would be yummy. That cake is outrageous!

so many great ideas!

Saveur - thanks for all those great links. I was trying to find a good black bean + orange soup recipe, and you linked to a few. Thank you!!

Moon - I'm not really a drinker, that's true... but I have enjoyed sangria from time to time. Good idea.

Hollie - YES. That is exactly how I feel.

In high school I had a mummified orange in my backpack and I kept it for years! ha ha. I should have made those little pomander dealios for everyone for xmas. Alas, now I am stuck with oranges up the wazoo! Tonight is orange mojo tofu and broccoli with Orange-Tahini dressing for dinner. We will not die of scurvy this year!
