|From the name, blood oranges should be in season at Halloween. But these wonders are in stores right now. Even our local supermarket has them!
They look exactly like regular oranges on the outside, but their inside flesh is a deep rosy red color; and the flavor is a cross between orange and raspberry—some people call them “raspberry oranges.”
Whatever you call them, be sure you buy some before the season is over. Eat them for breakfast instead of grapefruit (or squeeze them for heavenly juice); add them to fruit salads, green salads, and seafood and chicken salads for beautiful color and flavor; use sections to garnish grilled fish or create a concasse; enjoy them for dessert and snacks; and make a memorable blood orange sorbet (Ciao Bella has one available year-round).
