I have been on an orange kick lately. Oranges are one of those fruits that can be stars in any season.
We always got an orange in our stocking at Christmas, which I can tell you I was not thrilled about as a child. It might as well have been a lump of coal at the bottom of the stocking as far as I was concerned. Now that I am older and have kids of my own, I give them oranges in their stockings as well. They are about as excited as I was. But maybe when they grow up, they will discover the many wonderful uses of oranges and have a different perspective. They are so versatile, and can be used in myriad dishes, from the savory to the sweet.
