Oranges, Blood

Oranges, Blood

Gorgeous in color and delectable in flavor, the blood orange has a short season in the middle of winter so get them while you can.

Blood oranges have a nice orange rind with a deep red or mottle red/orange pulp. The flavor is wonderfully sweet with an orange flavor, of course, but there are lovely berry undertones and a mild sweetness that makes for good eating. They make fantastic marinades and salad dressings, too. Salads, desserts, or eaten out of hand, it's all good with this versatile orange.
