Sour oranges

I was surprised to discover a sour orange tree at the Bosque this week and it was loaded with fruit. I took a few of the ripest oranges home for cleaning fish and salad material. Some people also use the juice for making teas and medicines. I find that a little juice from the orange with lots of cold water and diet sweetener is a delicious drink. We have to drink so much water here in order not to get dehydrated, anything that adds taste helps.

these oranges make the best marmalade! no chemicals on the outer skins, and the sour (or tart) makes really zesty jam. try it it is easy, I got a recipe off the internet. about 2 kilos of fruit make six jars of jam. one of my blog entries for RioRose lst month has some refereences you can use.
