I was so looking forward to my snack this afternoon. Anticipating a lovely, juicy orange. And then I peeled it. And it was awful. Dry and sad. I don't really want to eat it, but there must be some way to not waste it. Cook it? Add it to something else? Would it work in a smoothie or would it just make it lumpy? Any suggestions on how to use up a disappointingly dry orange?

Hmmm...maybe plant the seeds and see what happens?

Maybe add it to a salad where the dressing would hide the dryness and you'd have a little orange flavor in your salad, if you like that kind of thing.

Save the orange peel and use it to make a sachet for your underwear drawer?

I'm sorry, I'm out of ideas.

But I totally feel your pain. Many times I've looked forward to eating an orange, a tangerine or even an apple and was quite disappointed. Especially if they came in the same batch as an orange, tangerine or apple that was truly magnificent.

Now I feel I should have given more thought to my own dried out oranges.
I guess squeeze it into some water for flavor.
Don't they usually just taste bad anyway?

I had the very same thing happen to me an hour ago. It is indeed quite a betrayal. I need to go write a performance poem on the subject.

Same here. Just happened to me this morning. I had a nice red juicy looking apple but when I took a bite of it, I quickly learned it wasn't as glorious as it appeared. Dry oranges are the worst though. I usually end up squeezing out the juice and adding it to salads.
