These are so refreshing and delicious for summer! It's so simple!
- Wash and dry orange.
- Slice off the top third of the orange and replace it.
- Put the orange in the freezer until frozen. Take it out of the freezer at the start of your meal and it will be ready to eat with a spoon by the end of the meal. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprig of fresh mint if desired.
I was intrigued by this recipe, so I decided to give it a try... my orange was thinner-skinned than SusieQusie's, so it thawed out a bit faster. I sectioned it with a knife once it had thawed a bit, but I still couldn't get to the segments on the bottom. I agree with the previous reviewer that the bites I actually managed to get in were great -- they were just hard to get to! Thanks for posting.
This recipe captured my imagination so I took it for a test drive before using it as a formal dessert. The concept is brilliant however the actuality fell short for me. I took one out of the freezer and timed it. One hour later, it was thawed enough to pry off the lid. Spooning it out was tough! I finally resorted to a demitasse spoon to get the segments apart. I am still intrigued and plan to tinker with this. Perhaps if the orange were segmented like a grapefruit *before* freezing, it would be easier to eat. Thanks for the idea! It was fun to play with and the few pith-free bites I was able to snag tasted great.
