If you love oranges and the citrus flavor in your dishes this group is just for you. Come and join us and share your recipes, stories, tips and treasures that include anything orange.

Oranges, orange juice, orange zest or even marmalade are wonderful additions to any meal. The citrus flavor packs a punch and zing. Oranged are also used for other purposes as well. There are natural cleaning products, vitamins and they can be used for festive decorations; along with, the healthy values it offers make it an invaluable fruit.

Try not thinking of peeling an orange. Try not imagining the juice running down your fingers, the soft inner part of the peel. The smell. Try and you can't. The brain doesn't process negatives.

Getting ready to make a batch of my favorite jam this weekend...

Since this not only has cranberries but orange and ginger in it too the taste is sensational. You can use it as jam on toast, a baked ham, or even use it as a sauce for wings like Sherri Williams did when I sent her a jar several years ago. I'll post both links. Cranberry Orange Jam with Crystallized Ginger and Sherri's recipe is here. Kim B's Spicy Grilled Asian Jammin' Wings See what you think about it and let me know.
