Well just how large is this bag of oranges? Of course, you could always use up the bulk of them to make honest to goodness fresh squeezed orange juice. But I found a website with links to a lot of recipes calling for oranges. http://southernfood.about.com/od/orangerecipes/Orange_Recipes_Recipes_using_Oranges_and_Orange_Juice.htm

Squeezing for fresh orange juice was the first thing that came to my mind. If you are really tired of them, share them with neighbors!

Well, you can get a box of orange jello, or any flavor I guess, and put orange slices in it.

Well I'll give you a few ideas: a) how about orange marmalade? It could be some work, but it is so tasty! b) how about fruit punch with orange slices and/or orange juice? You could get crystal light fruit punch flavor, or you could mix pineapple and fruit juice---then with the fruit punch you could add orange slices and/or orange juice. It would be good on hot days or for parties. Pablo

You have been given many great suggestions. BUT if you tired of them.. take them to a homeless shelter, or food bank, give them to neighbors friends.. etc

Well, ok, if you want something healthy that will make you tipsy without any long lasting effects and without being fattening, then I suggest smoking a dube, then eating the oranges or juice when you get the munchies and dry mouth. You will wake up refreshed, and satisfy hunger and thirst at the same time. hee hee.

Stuff a chicken with some of them, and bake it in the oven, Bella, yum, yum! Or make an orange sauce. It's really very easy - you can find a recipe on the net, you know. Orange sauce is wonderful with chicken or cornish hens, or any poultry. I've also used it with pork. Check out some recipes on the net, Bella. You'll find something that tickles your fancy. Have fun with it!

First you put them in the freezer....then you find yourself an old sock...oops sorry. don't know what I was thinking....hmm oranges...ever had orange chicken? Get yourself some boneless skinless chicken tenders. Cut all the visible fat off of them (dice them up if you want to) season them with some lemon pepper and put them in a deep skillet with 2 tablespoons of EVOO. Squeeze the juice out of 2 or 3 oranges depending on how much chicken you have. I usually dice up about a pound and a half of chicken then use 3 oranges. Pour the juice over the chicken and reserve the pulpy slices for later. Cover and simmer on low heat about 15 minutes. Then add the pulp that you reserved earlier to the chicken and cook for 5 more minutes. While this is cooking steam up some baby carrots with diced up orange segments and some raisins. Serve it all over steamed brown rice with 2 tablespoons of I can't believe it's not butter. IT'S YUMMY!

I put an orange in my husband's lunch almost every day. He loves them. I'm not a big orange eater but I love fresh orange juice and adding them to smoothies...just puree with banana (and any other fruit you like), ice, and milk. I also like a little orange juice and zest in my muffins: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup wheat germ 1/2 cup dried cranberries 1/2 cup chopped nuts 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp salt 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup canola oil 1 teaspoon grated orange rind 1/2 cup fresh orange juice 2 large eggs (or egg substitute) Cooking spray 1 tablespoon raw sugar Preheat oven to 375°. Combine flour and next 8 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine brown sugar, oil, rind, juice, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake for 17 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched in center.
