Oranges are a traditional holiday food gift, and they're certainly a wonderful bit of sunshine for anyone heading into the coldest part of the year. Here, eight ways to cook with them.
Oranges are a traditional holiday food gift, and they’re certainly a wonderful bit of sunshine for anyone heading into the coldest part of the year. Here, eight ways to cook with them.
1. Salad. Oranges are fantastic in winter salads. For a Moroccan version, toss them with carrots, dates and a spiced dressing. Go Latin with avocado, jicama and cilantro salad. Or try a California take with fennel, mint and lemon-honey dressing.
2. Punch. To use up lots of oranges at once, make a cinnamon-spiced citrus punch.
3. Syrup. Simmer equal parts of fresh orange juice, water and sugar until thick to make a syrup for adding to seltzer; or drizzle the mixture over pancakes, as chef April Bloomfield does.
4. Marmalade. Turn extra oranges into marmalade. Here, oranges and lemons make a sweet-tart version.
5. Orange beef. Make a less sticky-sweet version of the Chinese takeout classic.
6. Chicken marinade. Blend fresh orange juice with lemon juice, ancho chile and lots of garlic to make a Yucatán-style marinade for whole roast chicken.
7. Gratin. Broil brown sugar–and–marmalade topped orange slices until they're caramelized, and serve topped with crème fraîche.
8. Simple dessert. Drizzle oranges with honey as an easy two-ingredient dessert. Or infuse that honey with rosemary, as writer Tamar Adler does.
