Recipes Using Oranges

A simple and tasty treat! You can use any type of chocolate you want to but dark chocolate makes the orange or tangerine segments taste absolutely divine :-)


  • 2 medium naval oranges or 3 tangerines
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips


Peel the oranges or tangerines and separate into segments.

Place a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet.

Place chocolate chips in a double boiler and heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted.

Dip the orange or tangerine segments lengthwise into the chocolate one at a time, coat three fourths of each segment and place on baking sheet.

Place baking sheet in the refrigerator or freezer and let set until chocolate has hardened.

Take 3 oranges. Peel them into slices and make sure to remove all peels and white pithy stuff. Layer them on a flat plate and sprinkle them with 4 teaspoons of maple sugar.

I have an abundance of oranges. I bought two cases of oranges which were being sold as a fundraiser. The oranges are okay but not terrific, so my family is not eating them up. Besides juicing and making marmalade, I can't think of anything else I can do with the oranges to use them up. Got any suggestions?

How about freezing portions to replace lemon juice/zest for cooking and baking, fruit syrup for pancakes, candied peels, orange meringue pie?
Any of the cooking magazine type sites should have lots of ideas and at least some are search able by ingredient.

Three in a small basket wrapped nicely would make a good neighborly gift!

This would only use up one, two or three oranges depending on the batch amount you make but the meatballs and sauce are freezable for future use :-) (I double or triple the recipe for freezing)

I think I've posted this recipe before here but not under the catergory of usages for oranges ;-) It's dear to my heart because it's my Grampa Tampourlos' recipe ... He came to the US in 1917 from Greece and it remains a family favorite :-)

Tampourlos Family Greek Spaghetti & Meatballs

1 lb Hamburger (not lean)
2 tbls diced onions
12 saltine crackers, crushed
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbls grated orange rind
1/4 tsp salt
Dash of pepper
28 oz can tomato sauce
Spaghetti (or other non-flavored favorite pasta :-)

Combine all ingredients, except pasta, and 'round' into dollar size balls. Brown meatballs in a skillet on medium heat. Transfer the meatballs, and the hamburger grease from browning them, into a baking dish. Add the tomato sauce. Bake covered for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Cook your choice of pasta "al dente" and smother with sauce and meatballs.

Serve with Greek Salad (tomato, cucumber, red onion all cut your favorite way; tossed with olive oil, red wine vinegar, crumbled Greek feta cheese and pitted Kalamata olives) Also serve with Greek feta cheese, Kalamata olives and French bread with room temp unsalted butter. Don't forget to serve with orange wedges as a garnish/fruit treat ;-)

Serves 4

Believe it or not I have frozen orange slices that were delicious when I ate them. I just wanted to see if it would work and they were good. Peeled orange and slice segmants.

So I have a bunch (10 or so) mandarin oranges in cups, that are in liquid. My hubby is not really a big fan, so I was wondering if I could make some type of dessert with them and give them to some of my friends. Or any other ideas of something that I can do with them because I am tired of eating them plain. Any ideas?

This page contains recipes for orange chicken. We are all familiar with the ubiquitous Chinese buffet menu item, orange chicken. The flavor of oranges complements chicken dishes of may types and origins.
