True Blood

Red is the new orange

I love blood oranges. I always manage to feel a bit surprised when I slice into a blood orange. Happy surprise at the splattering of ruby juices from a mainly orange-hued orange. Sometimes there is giveaway streak of blushing scarlet on the orange cheek but, for the most part, it is most definitely orange. A blood orange has its own unique flowery, sparkly sweet taste. We are still months away from local strawberries. If you crave the bite of something red this late winter, try a blood orange.
