Babe, what you said makes so much sense in dealing with my mom.

My Mum is 96yrs old, she eats a large bag of prawn crackers a day, if she does not have at least 4 packet in the cupboard I'm toast.

Amen, Babe!

The pantry can be cleaned out after they are gone.

Now is the time to enjoy and treasure the time you all have left with each other.

My first choice would be Joesfolks' .. But really, a can, drained, in any stir-fry. In a blender with vanilla ice cream or orange sherbert (and a dollop of vodka or rum if making for adults).

I've had canned mandarin oranges on chicken before. It wasn't too bad-- the guy I was seeing cooked it for me. He lived in dorms and cooked everything on a bbq. I recall him pouring the juice into the pan and cooking the chicken in it (I remember a bit of amaretto being added as well). While the sensation of eating warm mandarin was a bit odd- the chicken itself was lovely.

Thanks Dawgers, she can be a right bugger if she forgets to charge her mobile

Canned Mandarin orange slices will complement any green salad with an Asian dressing, especially if it features a thinly sliced sweet & sour, Kung Pao, or Mongolian chicken breast.

I would puree the whole mess of canned fruit and make sorbet and / or Popsicles.

For popsicles you could add in some vanilla yogurt and maybe a little extra orange extract to pop up the flavor.
