What We Love: Blood Orange Recipes


No Comments


My local organic farm CSA brings in a variety of organic vegetables during the winter. Each week, I pick up a few bags worth of goodies. Some are old standbys, while others are new to my kitchen. I’ve tasted blood oranges before, but never really cooked with them. That said, I endeavored to search the Web, learn all I can about them and get to cooking. I learned so much over at The Food Section, and started searching food blogs. Here are some great recipes I discovered during my online travels. I hope to try a few in the next week and report back here.

Roasted Beet and Blood Orange Salad with Spicy Greens Recipe – A recipe Heidi posted back in 2005

Blood Orange Sorbet – Such a lovely photo.

Blood Orange Tart – Inspired by a Bon Appetit recipe.

Blood Orange Tapenade Citronette – From Chef John in San Francisco.

Blood Orange Margaritas – From a food blogger in Baltimore, Maryland.

Blood Orange Jelly – Looks so delicious and so easy.

Blood Orange Chocolate Cake – Chocolate goodness over at Eat Drink.

Blood Orange Curd – This looks absolutely divine. This may be the first recipe to attempt.

Blood Orange & Blackberry Gelees – I made gelees similar to this in December.

Blood Orange & Fennel Biscotti – Figs Olives Wine in NYC made these biscotti, and I may have to follow suit this week.

Lychee Rose Parfait and Orange Blossom Macaroons – I could never make these myself, but they are so darn cute.
