It seems like oranges are in everyone’s yard this time of year, big juicy oranges. I love to pick and eat them, add them to salads, or stir fry, and to juice them.. BUT don’t juice before you grate the rind. There is always a recipe that calls for grated orange rind and the time of year you want to make it oranges are not so sweet and way too expensive. So before you juice your oranges take just a few minutes and grate the rind (or zest it if you like strips) and put the zest or grated rind in a zip lock baggie (LABELED!)and tucked in the frezzer then grated rind is waiting for you when ever you need it and didn’t cost you a thing!  I do it with lemons too… But keep the rind in separate baggies and label each one.
