Orange and Cloves
My father-in-law, who is an enthusiastic consumer of oranges, sent us home this weekend with a massive bag of oranges picked from their neighboring groves. They are juice oranges, so they burst apart and the sweet juice drips down your arms if you attempt to peel and eat them. You have to hover over the kitchen sink and make loud sucking noises as you shove your face into the half-peeled skin to try to catch the drips and keep the pulp from falling apart in your fingers. It’s kind of a pain. Instead, I have been making freshly squeezed orange juice out of them for breakfast every morning. Yum!
Anyway, I remembered this easy fall craft that you can do with kids. It is nothing revolutionary, but shoving whole cloves into oranges smells soooooo goooooood. It’s always fun to play with your food!
