but seriously, can we make stuff with ornamental oranges???? i get a fuck load of them come winter. they just clutter up my little courtyard area.
this probably belongs in the "currently cooking with ornamental oranges thread", but based on quezo's input from today:
orange curd sweetened with (local) honey
and from my own experience, i've used the juice in place of lime juice or other citrus in recipes. it's called for specifically as a marinating ingredient in a lot of cuban food (mojo, for example). i also use it in cocktails all the time - mojitos rule.
oh, and dave i'd totally have a food extravaganza with you. i don't know if i want to make it a competition (it's the culinary equivalent of a battle of the bands), but let's do it. in deference to the people who get their gears grinded by you and me derailing their threads, we should probalby start another one to discuss it...
