SINCE I grow my own oranges, I often experiment by adding them to my favorite foods. I found this sweet fruit to be quite compatible with lamb, a meat I often serve. The wonderful orange juice-based sauce is simple to prepare, and its hint of spices really complements the lamb. -Margaret Pache, Mesa, Arizona
