Lee, our intrepid photographer, was playing around with some color palettes recently. The addition of the blood oranges was inspired and inspired me to ask, what do you do with a blood orange? Lee shared her favorite ways to peel away the mystery. First of all, it's supercharged. The pigments which give it a red hue are also antioxidants, which is uncommon for a citrus. And yes, it is just like those found in berries and red wine. Super Food! Her boys simply peel and eat, but the sometimes tart profile may be a bit too much for certain palettes. Lee likes to use them for salads. Cut up and tossed with fennel and greens or paired with a goat cheese and nuts. The juice is fabulous for vinaigrettes as is the zest. Blood oranges also add a festive touch to a cocktail. Delicious in sangria or mixed with vodka and a splash of soda. Zesty!
