Pickled Oranges Recipe/ Poutine French Fries

We grow about 450 lbs of Potatoes each year and so they are a big part of our diet.  About every 2 weeks I cut up Potatoes into french fries.  Use my big Chinese Food Wok to heat the vegetable oil in and cook up the fries in small batches.
These I pat dry with paper towel and add to a big rooster pan and keep warm on the wood stove.  I then make up a package of Poutine Gravy mix and pour on top of fries.  Then add a little crated cheese and let melt.  NOW THESE ARE GOOD.

 WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT PICKLED ORANGES WOULD BE GREAT!!!   but these are a real treat with pancakes or chicken or duck.
4 Oranges scrubbed, put in saucepan with a pinch of soda.  Cover with water.  Bring to boil, then simmer for 20 min.  Cut into 8 wedges each.
2 cups w.vinegar           pinch cinnamon
1 cup sugar                   
1 tsp ground cloves       

Boil Syrup, add wedges.  Simmer 15 min.
I use small jars.  Place wedges in jars, add a Clove plus a Bay Leaf to each jar.  Cover with syrup.  
Seal and use Hot Water Bath for 10 minutes.
We're at altitude 535 meters.

In the winter when we don't have Oranges this is a real treat.  


  1. Thanks for sharing - we will sure make both the fries and the pickled oranges. What altitude are you at? I may need to adjust the time on the water bath.

  2. I've missed you guys, I'm glad I found you again.
    If you blog isn't the closest thing to an Canadian/Alaska soap Oprah .
    Work,relax,family......... Love it.
    My wife lived up in Watson Lake for awhile and she agrees with you Gravey and fries are the only way! She tried to get me to try Vinager and fries but that was too new for this Alaskan.
    Stay safe from Juneau
