Dehydrate them in slices, then sprinkle on cinnamon and nutmeg. Then string on fishing line great for decorations for your next Christmas.

Citrus Salad with Star Anise

1/4 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon anise seeds or 4 whole star anise

3 grapefruits

2 navel oranges

Simmer water with sugar and anise in a small saucepan over moderate heat, stirring for 1 minute. Cool slightly. Cut and peel and clean the white pith from grapefruits and oranges work over a bowl, cut grapefruit and oranges into sections, Pour off juice and reserve for other uses. Stir syrup into fruit and chill ,covered, 1 hour.

This keeps very well for days I make double or triple most of the time is great when you have house guests.

Hi. I just peel and clean the white skin and seeds out and cut in sections and add a can or 2 of chunk pineapple with it own juice. I use as a breakfast dish. It's good for snacks too, and keeps well in the refrigerator.

Hi There - looks like you have gotten a lot of good ideas - but I have one more. Try making marmalade. There are lots of good recipes on the net - just google marmalade recipe and pick one - they are all good - I have tried a few, but forget which ones!

Be sure to use some for eating, with recipes or juicing, but think about that decorating idea someone gave earlier. I dehydrated slices of oranges and grapefruit and made a garland on heavy string, strung along with large wooden beads, and decorated with large natural raffia bows/streamers on the ends. I hung it from the mantel that first Christmas, now it's above a double doorway permanently. Also use tiny cookie cutters to cut shapes from some of the rind, and let them dry naturally on paper towels. They can be glued on anything you want to decorate. The rind doesn't shatter easily when dried.

The idea of juicing them and freezing the juice is a good one. You could go one step further and freeze the juice in ice trays. Good snack for kids.

Can you take them to your local food shelter? I would imagine that they don't get a lot of fresh fruit.
