Storage Tip: Although you can store oranges at room temperature, they will last longer in the fridge in a plastic bag.
Did you know... Oranges are the third most popular fruit, after bananas and apples. One rotton orange can spoil the bunch. Warm oranges produce more juice than cold oranges.
Culinary Compatibility: Oranges are a great addition to almost any smoothies. Orange juice is great for fish marinades. Orange zest (the peels) are the secret ingredient in many of the best tasting cookies, muffins, sweet breads, and cakes. Oranges go surprisingly well with mashed up with carrots, turnips, or squash.
Health Information: Oranges are a good source of fibre and folate and an excellent source of vitamin C. Oranges are high in antioxidants, which prevents cancer (especially stomach cancer). Oranges have pectin and terpenes (a phytochemical), which reduces cholesterol.
