The Blue Crane Citrus farms nestle between two mountain ranges in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The Swart family are 100% dedicated organic, growing our oranges -- along with clementines, grapefruit, lemons, butternut and sweet potatoes in the Sundays River Valley. Some of the farms share their unfenced borders with Addo National elephant park where the “Big Five” can be seen roaming free in their natural habitat.
If you want to use the zest, simply rinse them and grate away, since the oranges are unwaxed. People find different ways to peel an orange; one alternative is to slice the orange and eat it straight from the skin. In warmer weather they're best kept in the fridge. Less ripe fruit contains more pectin. Peeled or stored oranges quickly lose their vitamin C.
