What to do with over 30 lbs of tangelos?

My husband just got over 30 pounds of tangelos and I don't want them to go bad. What can I do with so much citrus? Recipes would be greatly appreciated.

Jeez, if I had that much, I'd probably go get a juicer, juice 'em up and freeze it. In this thread - Frozen Citrus Zest - people talked about freezing citrus zest to use later. HTH.

Refrigerate!!!!!! Eat out of Hand...Fresh squeezed juice every morning....Go get a bottle of champagne and make Mimosas for Thanksgiving. Use some to squeeze and marinate with. Put some inside the cavity of your turkey.....Refrigerate!!!!

I'd zest it and juice it, and freeze both. Although, I do like the Champagne idea.

Since you have so many, a pretty addition to your holiday decor would be to make a wreath out of lemon (or other pretty) leaves and tangelos. (The fruit needs to be attached with wooden skewers). Then tie it with a pretty large ribbon.

Other than that, the juicing/marmalading would be my guess too.

....Or you could share some of your bounty with a neighbor/friend.

Sorry, I don't tend to make it myself - my MIL gives us plenty. Most good books on preserving will have a recipe or even a google will produce some.
