'oranges' on Serious Eats

DIY Orange Soda

DIY orange soda delivers the same satisfying combination of sweet and tart you get from the commercial version, but mixed in with the familiar sharpness and prickly joy of orange soda is a new and exciting flavor I wasn't used to tasting in my soda—real oranges. More

Pine Nut-Orange Caramel Sauce

Bright, citrusy oranges and mellow, nutty caramel have a natural affinity. Toss in some toasted pine nuts and you've got a seriously delicious dessert sauce. Try it over polenta cake or vanilla ice cream. It will keep for at least a week in the fridge. Reheat it over low heat before serving. More

Blood Orange Beaujolais Marmalade

This marmalade has a gorgeous, purple-crimson hue. The flavor is a bit sweeter than traditional marmalade, with notes of raspberry and wine. It would be absolutely delicious sandwiched between layers of almond or polenta cake, or try it with cornmeal biscuits. A jar would make a great Valentine's Day gift. More

DIY Orange Bitters

Just a drop or two of orange bitters can add the right depth to your cocktail or bridge together ingredients that aren't quite living up to their mixological potential. Deep, citrusy, spicy, complex orange bitters are an essential part of so many balanced cocktails. The beauty of DIY bitters is unleashing your creativity and crafting bitters that you can't find anywhere else. I emphasized anise, but you could just as easily play up the cloves or add cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, or ginger for a whole new flavor profile. More

Rhubarb Orange Vanilla Jam

This recipe combines rhubarb with chopped orange peels, fresh orange juice, and the seeds of a vanilla bean. The results taste a bit like rhubarb pie shot through with orange marmalade. The sweet-tart flavor of this jam would complement any dark baked goods like gingerbread or spice cake. More

Cook the Book: Wild Rice Salad with Oranges and Roasted Beets

It seems as though beet and orange salads—usually mixed with a handful of baby greens, a tart vinaigrette, and a crumble of goat cheese—are the fashionable salads of cold weather months. And while I'm a big fan of the combo, I have to admit that I was thrilled to see the ingredients handled in a new, exciting way in Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Appetite for Reduction. More
