Make an orange marinade…
Scattered here and there around our yard are small orange trees. Not the yummy, sweet oranges you first think of when you come to Florida, but the pucker your lips, bitter type oranges.
Some call the Indian oranges and some call them just bitter. And for awhile.. I called them worthless. They were beautiful in bloom but then they would just hang on the tree and just rot.
Until the other day, someone told me that I could do ALL kinds of things with those bitter oranges.
Insert Forfest Gump Voice here…
Orange-aide ( like lemonade)
Orange hand cleaner
and the one that caught my attention… Orange marinade.
Now it would have been real nice of me to take a picture of the orange marinade that I made or the chicken I poured it over, but you know what.. That wouldn’t be the Not So Perfect Housewife way of doing things.. and I just dun forgot to do that. Sorry…
But take my word. It was YUMMYLICIOUS!!
How about you? Any really cool bitter orange recipes you’d like to share?
