Orange Crush

Juicy tangerines waiting for their turn in the juicer.


It’s tangerine season. And while I love the idea of tangerines, I really, really hate all the seeds. This makes tangerines perfect candidates for juicing and turning into granita, savory stir-fries, cake, and spritzers. Here is a simple beef stir-fry made with sprightly tangerine juice and my favorite granita.
