Sweet and Savory Orange Recipes

Got a bashful of the citrus fruit and not sure how to squeeze the best recipes from them? Check out these faves

Nothing is better than citrus to wake up a damp, dreary day. The vitamin and fiber-rich orange injects a bright note of color and flavor to winter dishes, whether it’s a zippy citrus salsa over chicken cutlets or fish fillets, a sweet-tart glazed cake, or a knockout custard-and-fruit tart.

When choosing oranges, go for ones that are firm to the touch, that smell sweet, and have no discoloration. There are dozens of varieties to choose from (they are the most grown fruit tree in the world, after all), but they are divided into two categories: sweet and bitter. Brazil grows the most, followed by China and India, so don’t be disappointed if your oranges are not native Florida grown. Store them for up to a month in a cool, dry spot.

Whichever oranges you choose, make sure to experiment with both the types of recipes, sweet and savory, and juice a little extra for a healthy shot.
