Oranges Make Me Smile

 This is how we love our oranges. Cut into “smiles”.

Doesn’t it feel like oranges bring a heaping does of sunshine into your home? (See how we make “orange fruit baskets [5]” for picnics.)

Did you know that Sunkist Valencia oranges can “re-green” in warm weather? I didn’t either, until I watched this Sunkist Valencia Oranges Re-greening Video [6]. Apparently, after oranges ripen on the tree, warm temperatures can cause the bright orange color to look partly green. Don’t worry, though. They are still ripe and sweet on the inside!

In case you want to get fancier with your oranges than we do at our house, try these additional Sunkist citrus recipes [7].

Or how about this fabulous looking recipe?
