Come the dark days of winter, there’s nothing quite like the sun-kissed nectar of navel oranges to remind you of all things summery and warm. About this time of year, you can get a pretty good bargain on a bagful. Sure, they go great with your morning bowl of cereal, but why not find some new, tasty ways to enjoy them well into evening?

Why order take-out when you can whip up this (healthier) alternative? Rather than gloppy carry-out sauce, you can enjoy a light, flavorful glaze made from soy sauce, rice vinegar and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

 

 

2. Orange Pork Chops

Oranges and pork are a classic pairing. Dress up your weeknight dinner with some slices of navel oranges that are simmered with the pork chops, then topped with a delicious sweet-and-savory sauce.

 

 

3. Fresh Oranges with Caramel and Ginger

This elegant seasonal dessert is so simple it’s almost embarrassing. Just make sure to watch the caramel carefully: it can go from luscious tan to just plain burnt very quickly.
