Very salty oranges that smell lovely and fragrant but are too salty to eat alone. Combine with other dishes, raw or cooked. Recipe by Alexis Goertz, Edible Alchemy
Note: This recipe doesn't have exact measurements as you can simply make as much as you like or have. This recipe can also be made with other citrus fruits.
Wash oranges. Cut into quarters. At the bottom of a clean, sealable jar sprinkle some salt to cover the bottom. Add a layer of oranges. Salt over the top. Add another layer of oranges. Salt over the top. As you are adding layers, push the oranges down so they juice and there are no air pockets.
Once the jar is full to the top with salt and oranges, add one last layer of salt and close the jar. Leave jar at room temperature for 3-4 weeks with a plate or bowl underneath for possible leaking. The high concentration of salt will keep unwanted yeasts and bacteria away.
The end result are very salty oranges. They smell so lovely and fragrant but are too salty to eat alone. Combine with other dishes, raw or cooked.
Will last in the fridge for over a year!
My latest 'sweet' dish was a salted orange vegan ice cream:
Blend and enjoy a refreshing and healthy treat!
If you just want to eat those oranges, that is also totally understandable! Then left with all that orange skins, one can simply do the same thing to get a more tart result full of flavor!
I cut mine into small pieces so that the salt has an easier time to pull all the rest of the juices out as the skins are a lot more dry than the whole oranges.
After about a 3-4 weeks at room temperature, they can be pushed down and stored in the fridge. You will notice that they develop a lovely thick syrup full of orange flavor and of course salt!

Smallholders and local producers harvest and refine products of extraordinary quality worldwide. But for many of these producers there is no adequate or stable market. You can buy directly from these producers via the Access to Market Platform and help them to participate in the market. The principle behind this is crowd ordering – a new trade model whereby a number of consumers order a product together so as to achieve a minimum order quantity. We at gebana support the producers with our know-how, and organise the logistics.
Enable someone to make their first export with your order. Please note: Unexpected events often lead to delays, and you may find that the quality is not yet perfect. For this reason, your feedback is absolutely essential. The export experience and your feedback are important steps for the producers towards accessing the market. As a customer, you are witness to the whole process, playing your part in pioneering work.
You can order from these producers simply and directly. You receive your product as soon as the minimum order quantity has been reached and the products are ready. The risk for you is minimal, since the producers already have a product that is ready for market. This sales channel is beneficial to both the producers and the consumers, since it cuts out the middle man.
Be part of the development of supply chains and support innovation! Some of the ways you can do this include testing new products, giving feedback, or financially supporting the producers in their next steps. In doing so, you will be able to see for yourself how the products and supply chains develop.
This is where you can see all the completed projects on the Access to Market Platform at a glance. You can find out where products are now available from or whether the producers are still seeking a trade partner.
