The Wonderful World Of Oranges

Oranges have been for years, considered a healthy part of our lives. Whether we drink it as a juice, or eat it alone as a snack. We have even used it in many of our meals as a seasoning or to give it a wonderful flavor.
But I enjoy oranges no matter how it is served to me.

Orange Meringue Pie
3 eggs, divided
½ c. sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. melted butter
1 tbsp. grated orange rind
1 c. orange juice
1 9 inch pie shell
¼ c. plus 2 tbsp. sugar

Beat yolks until thick. Add ½ cup sugar, flour, butter, orange rind and juice; mix well. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Reduce to 350 and bake for 25 minutes more or until set. Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over hot filling, sealing to edge of pastry. Brown meringue for 10 minutes in a 350 oven. Chill.
