Get The Juicy Facts Here

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a tangerine, tangelo, minneola, mandarin and cutie are? They all look alike, and they are all very similar in taste - a sweet, mild, juicy citrus orange flavor. According to, the tangelo, minneola, mandarin and cuties are in the "tangerine family", just like the many different types of apples such as macintosh, red delicious, braeburn, etc. are in the "apple family". And the different types of oranges such as navel, valencia, blood are in the "orange family", etc. The differences between  tangerines only vary slightly from color, size and texture to when they come in season. 

Orange you glad I shared this fact with you today?

Are you ready to go "green" this year? Well in this case, you could go "orange" by creating a candle made from the recycled peel of your citrus fruit.  

After you've carefully peeled the rind, cut an opening in the top, place a tiny amount of olive oil in the bottom and light the natural wick already in place! The candle will glow for hours. My girls made this one pictured below. And as two teens would say, "it's too cool"!

This is just too tricky! At this time of the year a "citrus" truck swings through my friend's town and she picks up whatever is ripe for us. Fridge is crammed with temples and pink grapefruit right now. I save the peel and mix with whole cloves and cinnamon sticks and water. Anytime I use the micro, put the bowl in to warm as well. Makes house smell great. You get candle glow as well though.

I love it! I hadn't seen a candle made like this before. Will have to go and get an orange and try it! I didn't know the difference between all those fruits and what family they were in until now :) I don't think I've ever had a minneola; I'll have to look for them at the store.

enjoy the weekend!
