Aaaaaaand today you get a made up appetizer with a made up name that consists of ONE ingredient! My mom and niece got the idea for this adorable snack from a teriyaki restaurant they recently went to. It was perfect to include at my mama’s Garden Party a few weeks ago, that she hosted for friends and gardening clients (she is a professional licensed horticulturist, as well as landscaper and gardener!).
These are super easy to make (though a bit time-consuming, I must admit), but are very cheap – only about $5 for a bag of oranges! I suppose you could say it involves 2 things, if you include the toothpicks (which are NOT edible, therefore can’t be called an ingredient, hehe).
I know that summer is almost over, but this is a great addition for any summer party – Labour Day Weekend, anyone? Everyone ooh’ed and aah’ed over them, while gobbling them up, of course. =P

-Cut the orange insides into 6 pieces.
