How to Store Excess Oranges (WFMW Tip)
Are you overrun with oranges, mandarins, or grapefruit?
Want to take advantage of good supermarket deals on these fruit but don’t know how to store them?
Well, since today is Works-for-Me-Wednesday, I’ve got a tip for you.
Yes, wrapping paper. For years my parents had a tree full of ripe oranges just after Christmas. Instead of throwing the used Christmas paper away, they would wrap the fruit in it.
Once wrapped, the fruit was put into a box and stored in the garage. The wrapping paper kept the fruit from moisture and kept them good for months.
I did a quick check on the internet and found that fruit wrapped like this can last from 2 weeks to 5 months. Ours lasted in the months category.
