Frosted Orange Rolls

If you love rolls and oranges, I give you the frosted orange rolls. Give it a round of applause, people! *claps* This is another of the delicious dessert recipes that will invade our tummies later. *winks* You know what’s really cool about it? It has oranges, baby! “Well, yeah? It’s called frosted orange rolls.” Aw, sorry. *big smile* Anyway, this recipe includes orange juice and zest. “Oh, that’s something. Hmm, tell me more about this recipe.” I would love to. But hey, before we enjoy these rolls, how about we get to know some facts about orange juice and zest first? “I’m cool with that.” Alright! Let’s go, people!

Orange juice is the liquid extract of the fruit of the orange tree. Orange juice is made by squeezing the fresh orange fruit, drying and later re-hydrating the juice, and later adding water to the concentrate. It is rich of vitamin C which is known for helping boost the immune system. It is also high in potassium, thiamin, and folate. Also, they contain flavonoids and hesperidin, which is an antioxidant. There are two kinds of oranges: the sweet orange and the blood orange. Well, the name sweet orange already speaks for itself. It is the most common type of orange juice. Blood orange on the other hand, is a mutant of the sweet orange. This type of orange is hard to find. But if you go to Italy, you can have your first gulp of blood orange juice. *winks*

Let’s proceed to orange zest, people! Zest is a “food ingredient that is prepared by scraping or cutting from the outer, colorful skin of unwaxed citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, citron, and lime.” According to Wikipedia, zest is “obtained from the flavedo that is also referred to as zest.” It is used to add flavor to cakes, pies, cookies, biscuits, candies and chocolates, and even in cocktails as garnish. It is also added in sorbets, sauces, and salads. Zest is scraped by using a zester, grater, vegetable peeler, and paring knife.

I won’t extend the waiting time. Let’s start peeling and rolling, and eat these frosted orange rolls! *winks*
