Blood Oranges are showing up in the produce section of my grocery store and I couldn’t resist picking up a few. I peeled three of these maroon colored fruits to juice for cocktails and I saved the peels to make sugared orange candies. Recipe for candies next week.
A blood orange is a variety of orange with crimson flesh. The red pigment is an antioxidant, so these oranges contain more antioxidants than other oranges. Their flavor is a little raspberry-like and is perfect for cocktails. Paired with Campari this cocktail is a little bitter so should be perfect for those that don’t like a sweet martini.
Peace, Good times, Good health
on Easter or Passover
