How to supreme an orange

Slicing an orange

Orange slices make a delicious addition to salads, fruit compotes and even to baked goods, but the membrane that makes oranges easy to peel and section by hand can make a tough addition to any of these sweet dishes. Generally, the best way to prepare an orange to go into a dish is to supreme it. Supreming an orange, sometimes described as sectioning an orange, ... Read More »

Blueberry and Blood Orange Crisps

Blueberry Orange Crisp

Citrus is often used as a flavoring for desserts from scones to cakes, but pieces of orange and lemon don’t always make it into the finished product. Frankly, you wouldn’t want to have big pieces of orange or lemon floating around in all of your recipes, but they do deserve the chance to take more of a starring role once in a while. With ripe ...

Orange Cranberry Muffins

Orange Cranberry Muffins

As soon as the oranges on my tree are ripe, I always set out to make a batch of Orange Cranberry Bread. It’s a simple quickbread recipe that includes fresh cranberries and lots of freshly squeezed orange juice. It’s relatively light in texture (and it also happens to be quite low in fat, so suitable for cutting into large slices!), but full of flavor from ... Read More »

Orange Sour Cream Cake

Orange Sour Cream Cake

I like cakes that you can just throw together, the kind that are made with just a few ingredients that you almost always have on hand.

This ... Read More »

Orange Blueberry Muffins

Orange Blueberry Muffins

After eating a sub-par muffin at a diner I really like recently, I realized that it has been far too long since I made a batch of muffins at home. It’s funny to have gotten out of the “habit” of making a batch every week or two, since they’re so easy to make, but then again there is nothing like an absecse (of muffins, in ... Read More »

Make your own Orange Pomander Balls

Orange Pomander Balls

The Orange and Clove Snowballs I made recently were cookies that featured the flavors of both orange and clove, chosen because I often made orange pomander balls around the holidays as a child (and still do!) and I really associate the season with the warm, spicy scent combination. As good as the cookies are, I still couldn’t resist making some real pomanders to set around ... Read More »

Orangina Cupcakes

Orangina Cupcakes

Orangina is definitely one of my favorite sodas. I don’t remember exactly where I was when I first had the sparkling orange (it’s actually yellow) soda, made with real orange juice and pulp, but I do remember that I wanted more. It has a light, fresh flavor and is not too sweet – more like juice than soda, really. I also remember that there was ... Read More »

Homemade Orange Julius

An Orange Julius is a frothy cold orange juice drink that tastes kind of like a creamsicle, except much lighter and much better. The company that makes them – also named Orange Julius – has been making these drinks since 1926. I remember getting so excited when I was a little kid and saw an Orange Julius stand. Absolutely nothing was more refreshing on a ... Read More »
