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.

Blood Orange Sorbet – Such a lovely photo.
