What are some creative ways to use up the 15 or so Florida oranges I received in a Christmas fruit basket? We rarely snack on oranges in our household, and I hate for them to go to waste!

Callie, our first instinct is to urge you to eat those oranges up; we love fresh winter citrus, and a really good orange is such a pleasure. But if you think you just won't eat them, what about juicing them? That many oranges should give you at least a few glasses of sweet, fresh-pressed juice. You can zest the skin, too, and use it in cakes or cookies.
And finally, what about these Blood Orange Jelly Smiles
? You take oranges and orange juice and mix in a little gelatin for a really fun (and light!) sweet.
Readers, and other thoughts for Callie?
