So we decided to move our beer drinking from my pole barn to the front yard last weekend for some reason and my buddy struck up a conversation about the three citrus trees I have in the front yard. I have always over-looked them because the fruit was fairly ugly coming off the tree, but my buddy told me to run over and grab a fruit off each tree and cut it open.
What do you know, I have a plentiful sour orange tree, a small grapefruit tree, and a regular orange tree... all producing amazing fruit. (I was then informed about how stores manipulate their fruit to make it look better for the shelf). He then told me that the sour oranges make a great pork marinade and I have TON of them on the tree right now.
Any idea what I can use them for? I'm doing a long smoke this weekend and usually just dry rub my pork for the smoker. I'm thinking about maybe getting a smaller piece and experimenting with some sour orange juice. Any ideas?
