Serving Ideas

There are so many ways to enjoy oranges in sweet and savoury applications! The classic duck à l’orange or even Chinese-style orange chicken is always a family favourite, or you can deglaze a pan with fresh orange juice to add as a sauce over some salmon or shrimp.

On the sweet side, cranberry and orange scones, muffins, bread, or even pancakes make a wintery and festive treat.

Orange juice is not just for breakfast! It makes a fantastic base for many mixed drinks, both alcoholic and kid-friendly. Pineapple, orange, and cherry is a tropical favourite among children and adults alike.

Try adding oranges to your smoothies, or make a simple snack a bit more indulgent by dipping orange segments in dark chocolate with a sprinkling of salt. The salt will bring out the sweetness in the orange and dark chocolate just envelops the sweet citrus flavour.
