Jo Malone. Are you guys friends with her? She has this scent calls “Orange Blossom”. And it is delightful. It reminds me spring time and yes, it puts a spring in my step. How did you know? I love oranges. Eating them. Drinking them. And now, sugaring them.
Take any orange you have, and slice them as thin as you can. If you have a slicer, use that bad boy. Did you see that Seinfeld episode where Elaine borrows Kramer’s slicer and breaks it by slicing her pair of heels? I digress. Apple Man used to work for Cutco so we have a plethora of knives. Use the one that looks like it can slice the smallest and choose that one. But slice carefully. Yes, I just “mommed” you.
And then you put the slices in the oven for a few hours. Try and not open the oven too much, like normal. But let me tell you, open it at least once so you can smell this goodness. And then think about Jo Malone and that you if you had Orange Blossom you would smell like this all the time. I’m not paid to say this, but it’s my obligation to tell you of delicious things, and Jo Malone is one of them.
And after they are all dried, then you add a bit of sugar and you blend the orange slices up and you are done! My favorite use of this so far is putting it in the filter with the coffee grinds to make orange coffee. If you want a treat, put a few chocolate pieces in the bottom of your mug and you have yourself an orange mocha. Or, make a cold pasta and put this in there with orange pieces, spinach, and make your own orange olive oil. Or in cookies. Or as a topping for ice cream. I mean, the possibilities are endless! And have I mentioned that you can layer Jo Malone’s fragrances? Even more possibilities.
1 Large Orange, sliced
1 tablespoon of sugar
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Slice oranges as thin as you can and place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for 3 hours. Remove oranges from oven and loosen off of the parchment paper. Once oranges have cooled, place in blender or food processor with the tablespoon of sugar, until the slices have become nice crumbles. That’s a very technical term, “crumbles”. Put in your coffee grounds, you won’t regret it.
