    I can't find it on there, tut tut Squeeky, you missed one. I think you should go back and re-check what you have done (only joking)

    The recipe is HERE on the second page, I've posted a link to the whole thread because it is similar to this one and it has other recipes to (like marmalade)
    When life hands you a lemon, make sure you ask for tequilla and salt

    Hi all thanks for your responses. I really wanted to make marmalade for xmas presents but every cook book i have says to use seville oranges! has anyone made marmalade out of bog standard oranges or does it turn out to sweet?

    Done and it was great! I also get lots of oranges and grapefruits in the veg/fruit schemes and sometimes we don't eat them so I collect them and make marmalade. I usually go and buy a bag of organic lemons in Sainsbury to add to it for a bit of bite and more pectin but this is not necessary really!

    I LOVE homemade marmalade!

    I suppose you could freeze the slices - I do this with surplus lemons to put into summer drinks.

    too many oranges
    I've got eight oranges which are about to turn if we don't eat them quick. Burger all left to put them with except apples, so can't just do a quickie salad.

    Any ideas what I can do with them? I know we won't eat them as they are, and don't want to chuck them out.

    I'd prefer to cook them really, as they're a bit soft, but haven't any recipes.

    Juice them and drink or make frozen orange juice lollies. Or freeze the juice to use later e.g. chicken in orange sauce or something.

    Oops, forgot to mention - we're both vegans! I DO have some ginger nut biscuits - something in the back of my mind says they'd go well with oranges - but WHAT?

    Three threads that might help, though for one of them you'd have to juice your oranges first

    - Orange juice - frozen, any ideas?

    - Orange peels - what do do with them

    - Oranges - 12 organic oranges, any ideas

    You could make lovely orange juice for breakfast tomorrow (keep in fridge overnight), or marmalade if you are feeling adventurous? Just use any old marmalade recipe, doesn't matter if it says 'seville' oranges, ordinary ones work as well.
  • justin138
    Well, being as I needed dessert today, this is what I came up with:

    6 ginger biscuits in the bottoms of a dish.
    3 oranges peeled and shredded, mixed with a tbs of sugar, heated through, then added a teaspoon of "egg replacer" to make it thicken (could use cornflour I guess), then spread over the biccies. Custard, made with soya cream dolloped on the top of that.

    I thought it delishus, Justin said it was OK, but he now tells me he doesn't like "hot" oranges. Ho hum. Going to send him to work with 2 tomorrow for lunch (being as he bought them and hasn't eaten them).

    Thanks to everyone for their replies, it gave me the impetus to think of a use for them.
