Blood orange

So yes, it’s two words and not one. But it’s still one thing, one idea to get you thinking toward the many different delicious treats you can make using blood oranges. Haven’t tried them yet? Don’t be afraid. They taste like regular oranges, only sweeter. The juice of the dark varieties may stain, though, so be sure to wear an apron or work shirt.
