Oranges from Around the World

As I was putting this post together I realized that people do a lot of different things with oranges other than just eat them, and this is really dependant on the culture. In Belgium, the country famous for chocolate, they dip them in chocolate, and in Spain, a country famous for wine, they add them to the wine. Here are some interesting things to do with oranges from around the world.

  1. What a wonderful – and beautiful – post! Now I have to go and eat something with an orange… I especially love the look of the Singapore breakfast so I’m also going to investigate how to make the coffee and the roti.
