Last night, one of our wonderful neighbors stopped by with a special delivery for us. She gave us a huge box filled to overflowing with oranges and grapefruits.
Since our children love to eat fruit whenever humanly possible, this was definitely a treat. They woke up this morning excited to have some oranges right away.
This gift of citrus definitely works for me. Also working for me this week is the fabulous neighbors we have, the sense of community in our little condo subdivision, and kids that are as excited by a box of fruit as they would be by a box of toys.
However, there are so many oranges and grapefruits that I'm just not sure we'll be able to eat them all before they go bad. I could really use some suggestions on what to do with the extras. I'm thinking I could dry some of the peels for potpourri. I know I could juice them, but can I freeze the juice? Beyond those ideas, I am stumped.
What would work for you if you had a bunch of oranges and grapefruits that needed to be used up quickly?
