Blood oranges are a seasonal fruit that has a rich, red color and a distinctively berry/citrus flavor. If you have the chance to try one of these unusual beauties, we highly recommend the experience.
The blood orange actually can be one of three different varieties, all with different shades of red to the flesh. They are more flavorful than a regular orange and one variety, the Tarocco, is said to have the highest vitamin C content of any orange variety in the world.
Blood oranges are revered for their unique flavor, and are found in many upscale recipes. We at Foodista, have selected a few of our tried and true favorites. Enjoy!
