Orange

The orange is an ideal addition to any dish, which it can flavor with its peel,
its juice, or its flesh.

Fresh, cooked, candied…

It runs the whole gamut of sweet to bitter.
For instance, the orange family includes clementines and kumquats.

Its scent is much appreciated by perfume-makers and cooks alike,
who use essential oils extracted from the orange peel.

At home, create an enchanting fragrance for your interior
by making “Pomanbers.”
How does one go about this, you ask?
Well, simply by means of a little patience and an orange or
clementine, studded with whole dried cloves.

Orange is “the” fruit of winter par excellence,
That is the season when the orange tastes its best!

A couple of things to keep in mind…

Oranges remain fresh at room temperature for a few days only,
or ten days or so in the refrigerator crisper drawer.

Freshly squeezed orange juice must be consumed immediately, as the air acts as an oxidizing agent and diminishes the amount of vitamin C contained in the juice.

Keep in mind that orange juice, orange peel, and orange sections peeled to the flesh can all be frozen for future use!
