Got Citrus?

 …um, we do!
A recent cold snap left us having to pick all the citrus off our trees. This has left us, family, and friends with LOADS of citrus!  Lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, tangelos-oh my!  
I’ve already processed this box of 85 lemons…
yielding more than 12 cups of frozen juice, 2 freezer bags of flash frozen lemon slices, 6 whole frozen lemons, a baggie of frozen zest, and more than 70 lemon juice cubes!
And, I have a box of over 100 oranges yet to process!
There are 5 more boxes just like those in my parents’ garage!  We will only be able to eat so many oranges, cranberry-orange muffins, and drink so much lemonade & orange juice!  So, this is where I need your help…

  1. Wow! Those oranges and lemons look absolutely yummy! I ran into this same "surplus citrus" problem myself over the holidays (but for me it was clementines). Mine had gone past the point of being any good to eat though, so we made them into Potpourri instead. Smelled amazing! Check it out here:

    I'm excited to see what zesty recipes you end up making. Good luck!
