Blood Oranges

January 24, 2014

Blood oranges are popping up at many of the fruit & veg stalls at the Market. Their color so distinctive I am always drawn to them as I pass by. They are so lovely to add a slice to sparking water for dinner, or juice them for a tart juice for breakfast. I crave citrus on these cold days, the blood oranges looking so pretty among other other fruit for a special fruit salad. Either for breakfast or for a healthy dessert. Some of you might remember our Japanese robin, Matisse. I had him first at my wholesale showroom and then he came to live at the Living shop. Blood oranges were his absolute favorite and he used to go crazy for them when they were in season. Such a fond memory. However you slice or serve them up, blood oranges add a specialness to anything they are added to.
