Orange You Glad for Oranges?: Time for Sassy Sunshine!
With winter days in full throttle we’ve got the perfect answer for cold days, the doldrums or a case of the sniffles. It’s our bright, bouncy and sassy Dried Oranges! Whether you enjoy any variety of our Dried Orange Slices as a zippy snack or perk up a recipe with our Dried Orange Powder, you’ll be adding nutritious California sunshine to your diet.
You know that Oranges are the poster kids for vitamin C goodness, right!? Well, when you enjoy ‘em skin and all, you’re giving yourself a boost of dietary fiber, riboflavin, folate, thiamine, vitamin B6 and calcium. And experts tell us that eating Oranges with their skins may help protect the body against some cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity and inflammation (1).
Fear not about the slight pucker factor! The taste and tanginess are your friends! Tear open a bag and eat ‘em just as they are, toss a slice or two into your tea, add ‘em to a beef or chicken marinade or infuse some in olive oil for a few days and use for cooking, marinades or salad dressings or make a potpourri to fill your home with a bright citrusy aroma. Go ahead and experiment with our Dried Orange Powder by adding some to your favorite baked goods or marinades. So many possibilities to enjoy!
