I know how strange it is, the first time I boiled oranges for that length in time, I kept having doubt, but it works wonderfully :-). Happy cooking. I hope your lattice pie tastes delicious.

How do you keep citrus fruits fresh?

The best way to keep citrus fresh is to leave the fruit on the tree. If citrus is picked for storing, care must be taken. The peel should not be scratched or bruised, and the fruit should be picked when dry. Cut the fruit from the tree and make sure the stems are cut close to the fruit. Store in a cool place and check often to see if there are any bad pieces of fruit amongst them.

Citrus juices can be preserved by freezing them for later use. Lemon or lime juice can be frozen in ice-cube trays. When frozen, remove cubes from trays and store in plastic bags or airtight containers in the freezer. The cubes can be easily used as flavourings.  Drying grated citrus peel makes it available for later use. Grate the citrus peel and spread it on a tray. Dry the grated peel in the sun or in a solar dryer. When it is dry, store it in an airtight container.
