Great Ways To Enjoy Oranges

Orange Simple Syrup:
2 cups fresh Orange juice
1/2 cup Sugar
8 springs fresh Thyme
In a small saucepan, combine orange juice, sugar, and thyme. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat, and simmer until mixture is reduced to 1 cup. Strain mixture, discarding solids.

Household Hints:
* Rub down household leaves with orange peels once a month. Cats will hate
you and leave your plants alone.
* Grind orange sections in the garbage disposal to remove household odor.
* Use orange peels for fireplace kindling.
* Rub orange peels over your skin for a natural mosquito repellent.
* Place a peel in the brown sugar container to keep it moist.
