Orange you glad I didn't say "twisted shrine"?

Do you know of a ritual that involves burning oranges, possibly as an offering? Maybe a skull is involved?

So I came across this article
about the "twisted shrine" Jared Lee Loughner had in his back yard. A photo shows a toy skull surrounded by burnt oranges in a flower pot.
"Experts on Sunday said the elements are featured in the ceremonies of a number of occult groups."
Which ones? I have never heard of burning oranges before. Does anyone recognize burning oranges as part of a known ritual?
