The best part of winter in Italy, gorgeous Sicilian blood oranges! When they cost about 3 Euro/kilo we buy them by the case. Who ever wakes up first starts the caffè and starts squeezing!! The flavor is sweet and almost like a smoothie, the color brilliant & bright and they are only here for about 2 short months and then gone until next February!
A few of our favorite recipes include:
Arancello (Blood Orange Liquor) - if you like Limoncello, you're going to LOVE this!
Blood Orange & Fennel Salad - light & fresh
Orange Lavender Cake - for breakfast and/or dessert!
