Blood orange

I hope you’ve been eating a variety of citrus all winter long because this is the season they shine like the sun!  If not, go get some right now.  You can use the fresh burst of flavor and dose of vitamins.  But try to break out of the orange mold.  There are fabulous grapefruits, tangerines, mandarins, meyer lemons, and blood oranges too.  What’s a blood orange you say?  It often will have a red blush on the peel, but also may look just like an ordinary orange until you open it up and see the red-purple flesh.  It’s a shock the first time.  The flavor is too, as it has a distinct berry tinge to the orange taste.  Yes, they are pricey, but you deserve a treat.  You have almost made it through this horrible winter.  What better to spend your pennies on?!
