What Can I Cook With Navel Oranges?

Good Questions

Q: I recently bought a bag of navel oranges, only to discover that most of them are dry and not fun for plain eating.

Any thoughts on cooking or baking with them? Can I use them in another way or will their being dry make them useless?

Editor: Heather, here are a couple of recipes for oranges that we think would be good regardless:

Orange-Scented Olive Oil Cake from Saveur
Blood Orange Jelly Smiles

Readers, any suggestions?
