Finally, one of my favorite fruits available!!!!
f you have ever attemped to dehydrate your own fruit or vegetables, you will learn how time consuming and expensive it will be. For the price this is a great value for a high quality, very nutritional, and tasty product. No more concerns about freshness or spoilage. Makes a great addition for daily use or for extended storage. It also makes a great, healty snack! Will be ordering a couple cases at this price!

I was a bit hesitant about ordering these because oranges are so full of liquid and I just couldn't picture how they'd successfully translate into a freeze dried form. But I am a sucker for freeze dried fruits so decided to give them a try. I wasn't disappointed! It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful freeze dried foods can be!

I love oranges and coffee for breakfast. These oranges taste good, provide a good source of vitamin C and other nutrition and are a great value! I look to get the most for my money when prepping and these oranges are great! I would recommend these to anyone who wants something more than peanut butter crackers for breakast in an emergency.

We love these right out of the can, a bit different. Hydrated they are good too. My wife likes to add these oranges, strawberries, and blueberries to a glass of water. She calls it festive water, after she drinks the water she eats the fruit. never ending possibilities. Will be getting more.

I bought an extra can of these freeze dried oranges to open and try. Hoping for a nice tangy treat, I was not disappointed! They are really tasty! Since they're freeze dried they're about the texture of the baked cheese curls in the supermarket. Re-hydrating produced a soft orange segment.

Wanting to keep a good quality of the leftover product I'm vacuuming sealing into pint canning jars. This will protect from air and moisture and storing in a dark place will take care of light. After sampling about a half cup I ended up with 5 pints of relatively whole segments and about 1/2 cup of powder from the bottom of the can. I expect the powder to be great in orange bread or cranberry orange relish.

I will buy more on sale.

We camp from end of November through first week of April and fruit is a must! Since we volunteer on an island in Florida, we have to take a boat to get fresh fruit, even oranges. Good substitute

These are great. I purchased these to use in recipes that call for orange juice, which I never have. As others have stated, they are delicious straight out of the can.

My problem that I would like some help with, I opened the can, used some oranges and stored the can in a dark pantry. Went to use the oranges for a recipe a couple of weeks later and they are all stuck together, I also have the same problem with grapes. What have I done incorrectly? I left the little moisture packet in the can and used the lid that comes with the can.

From the Ready Store:

Terri,

In humid locations such as yours (we looked up the email from this review in our system and saw your location) the best thing to do for long term OPEN can shelf life is to take the freeze dried food out of the can after it was opened for the first time and place it in a zip loc type bag while trying to remove the air in the bag as you seal it. Once this is done place the zip loc bag back into the can and put the lid back on. In humid climates the lids does an ok job by itself in keeping moisture away from the freeze dried food but sometimes it isn't enough. Oranges are one of the fruits we have noticed will start to clump up faster than others. You could also try using something like a Vacuum sealer as well. Hope this helps and we are glad you like the oranges as much as us. Regarding the grapes they are a little sticky in the first place even when opening for the first time though moisture getting in the can will speed it up.

Thanks,

Ready Store customer service

There is nothing sadder than your average greenhouse tomato, so I make a lot of winter salads with citrus instead. These orange wedges are perfect for that. Wait for a sale (hey, they're having one now), and then put a few cans on the shelf for yourself.

My husband had seen a review saying these were good in the orange gelatin, so we decided to try it. Oh, my goodness was this treat ever delicious. My children loved it, as did I. I just wish there were more oranges in a can.

You can convert the freeze-dried weight to that of fresh produce.
Price
Value
Quality
The USDA has a list that gives water content of foods, among other nutritional information. For peeled oranges, water content is 86.75% of weight. The 8.01 ounces of freeze-dried orange segments in the can represents remaining dry weight after water has been removed, and is therefore 13.25% of the weight of the original fresh orange segments. Dividing 8.01 ounces by .1325 gives us 60.45 ounces or 3.78 pounds for the weight of the original orange segments before freeze drying. (Actually, you should add 1% to 2% to the totally dry weight for a bit of residual moisture for freeze-dried or dehydrated food, but we'll calculate these so as to give them the benefit of every doubt.) If you want to figure how many pounds of fresh oranges in their peel that equals, there is another government table that gives you edible yield per pound of fresh produce. For oranges, the yield in peeled segments averages 60% of the weight of the whole oranges. So that 3.78 pounds of orange segments is equal to about 6.3 pounds of fresh oranges. The current sale price of $24.25/can then equals $3.84 a pound (0.25/ounce) for fresh oranges or $6.42 a pound (0.40/ounce) for drained canned segments. I would suggest the fairest comparison would be to the drained weight of cans or jars of orange segments, since the labor of peeling and processing does add considerably to the price of any orange that will keep on the shelf versus fresh fruit. Even when compared to the net drained weight of orange segments in cans or jars, though, these are still notably more expensive. These are an excellent product in terms of quality, and they will keep well far longer than conventionally canned orange segments. Armed with the comparative pricing, everyone can decide for themselves how they feels about the cost of adding them to their food storage.

I had a couple of #10 cans of these sitting around and never tried them, so I went ahead and did. The good: The orange flavor really pops in your mouth and the crunchy texture (un-reconstituted) makes this a wonderfully good, nutritious snack. The bad? These cans only hold 8 ounces and after just a few snacks, they were gone. It's a great product but for the price, I just feel there are much, much better options out there. I was disappointed that these only are 8 ounces worth of dried oranges and they sure don't last very long. My advice is if you really want to try them, wait for a really good sale, order only one, and try them yourself to see if it's worth the price. You will NOT be disappointed in the flavor and texture, just possibly the value.

From the Ready Store:

Ken, 8 oz is the dry weight. It will increase quite a bit when you reconstitute them. Agree they are tasty, if not addicting! Thanks for taking time to leave the review.

Thanks!

Ken

A word of caution

******Caution******

Before you buy please note that even though the picture shows navel oranges the product inside the can is mandarin oranges. This was a problem for my household because two of us have a strong dislike for the flavor.

If you like mandarin oranges (like cuties, but more sharp in flavor) then this may work for you. If you are a fan of normal US oranges (such as navels) this may not be what you are looking for.

I've purchased many things from The Ready Store and this is the first one that I've had an issue with (pissed me off actually).
