How to Freeze Orange Slices Without Them Sticking Together

Save

Antioxidant-rich oranges keep their nutritional value when preserved, making the freezer an ideal storage spot for keeping this healthy fruit on hand. The high vitamin-C content in oranges acts as a natural preservative, slowing down the oxidation process and discoloration of oranges, and allowing them to retain their flavor. You can dry pack this no-fuss fruit without it sticking and without the need for artificial sweeteners and syrups.

Things You'll Need

  • Water
  • Paper towel
  • Knife
  • Freezer-safe glass container with airtight lid
  • Wax paper
  • Rinse the whole orange under water and rub it dry with a paper towel to clean it. Peel off the skin of the orange.

  • Slice the orange into sections and cut them into smaller pieces, if desired. Remove and discard the seeds, membranes and pith.

  • Line the orange slices along the surface of a rectangular or square glass container that is freezer-safe and has an airtight lid. Place wax paper over the slices and arrange another layer of oranges on the wax paper. Repeat the process, leaving 1/2 inch of headspace at the top of the container to accommodate the expansion of the orange slices when they freeze.

  • Seal the airtight lid on the container. Place the oranges in the freezer and store for four to six months.
