The Humble Orange

Food is fun! Take a humble orange; sweet and juicy to eat but did you know just how much this vitamin C packed fruit can be used for?

  • Salad Dressing: Mix some fresh rocket and spinach leaves with a grilled chicken breast, spring onions and whole grain mustard. Now bring it to life with a citrus dressing of freshly squeezed orange juice, olive oil and a touch of honey!

  • Morning Juice: Orange, apple, ginger, carrot and celery juice is always a winner when it comes to energising you in the morning.

  • Glass Cleaner: Mix 2 cups of water with ½ cup white or cider vinegar, ¼ cup rubbing alcohol (70% concentrate) and ½ cup orange rinds for a citrus smelling, effective glass and mirror cleaner!

  • Extra Flavour: Finely grate the orange zest to use creatively in your kitchen. Try sprinkling over baked salmon fillets for some added zing, and serve with grilled asparagus.

There’s plenty more uses out there, so if you ever find yourself with too many oranges or need a quick, easy way to use some up, give these a go.
