Orange and Date Muffins.

Our orange trees have a good crop on them this year. They do not ripen completely till late September  but many are dropping on the ground. They are Franklyn Navel variety. Seedless and very sweet. I have made this tried and trusted recipe twice recently. Once made the muffins keep well in a container in the fridge for several days.. A good standby as we have had 2 lots of visitors in the last few days and I was able to produce something tasty to eat. Here is the recipe.
  ( should enlarge if you click on it ).
 Before putting the whole unpeeled orange in the kitchen whizz cut to to make sure there are no pips.
 Ordinary dates work just fine and are a quarter of the price of Medjool ones , so I use them for this recipe.

I might give them a try one day, I've saved the recipe!
Thank you for your kind thoughts regarding my op too!

What a good sounding recipe - as I have oranges everywhere right now, trying this out might just go on my list of things to do in the next few days :-) Thanks for sharing!

Looks delicious but alas my R is allergic to citrus. Also we don't have oranges growing in our Scottish garden...

Oh this is definitely one I have to try, like the addition of walnuts as an extra.
