Description 

 

Some folks may be put off by the name, but Blood Oranges are one of the tastiest members of the orange family. Blood Oranges are known for their sweet, intense orange-y flavor, with notes of ripe red raspberry and hibiscus. Their name (quite obvious when you cut into one) comes from the vivid deep ruby red color of their tangy flesh & juice.

 

Blood Oranges are typically smaller than an average orange and, in addition to their deeply colored interior, often bear a rosy blush on the outside of the skin. Not only are Blood Oranges remarkably more flavorful than ordinary oranges, they're also better for you. The red pigment found in Blood Oranges, called anthocyanin, is a powerful antioxidant and due to the high concentration of this pigment, Blood Oranges packs a more powerful punch of antioxidants than do other oranges. Like all citrus fruits, Blood Oranges are high in vitamin C and are a valuable source of folate, calcium, thiamine and dietary fiber.

 

Of course, Blood Oranges are wonderful when eaten fresh, but they can also be used in the preparation of many dishes. Blood Oranges make a colorful marmalade, and the zest can be used just like other citrus fruits. One popular winter salad is made with sliced Blood Oranges, sliced bulb fennel, sweet onion and olive oil.


Storage: tips: Keep Blood Oranges refrigerated. They'll only last only a couple of days at room temperature, but up to two weeks in the fridge.

Rhubarb, Pear, Apple and Raspberry Tart
This is not your usual old-fashioned rhubarb pie.
Layers of firm, toothsome apples & pears, nuggets of tart, tender rhubarb and a scattering of ruby-red raspberries make this tart a summery wonderland of tastes & textures. The crisp, rich shortbread-like crust is so much better than anything you can buy pre-made, that it's worth a little effort.

This tart stands on its own merits, but top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of soft whipped cream or a couple of spoonfuls of thick Greek yogurt, and you've got a dessert to remember.

Seviche de Veracruz
Seviche is extremely popular throughout Mexico, the Caribbean, and other parts of Latin America, and while it has many variations, it's basically a simple fusion of seafood and citrus juice, with a few other ingredients and spices. Seviche is frequently served as an appetizer or even as a light meal. There's really no mystery to its preparation - when the acid of the citrus comes in contact with the fish, chemical reaction occurs, similar to what happens when the fish is cooked, and the flesh becomes opaque and firm.

Seviche can include a mixture of saltwater fish, scallops or other shellfish, squid or octopus. Onion, chiles, tomato, pepper and cilantro - and of course, garlic.

Bricked Chicken with Chanterelles and Asparagus

Blackened Grouper with Asparagus and Morels
Grouper, a moist, firm, yet flaky fish, with a sweet mild flavor really benefits in this style of blackening. Served with the earthy, rich flavors of morels, the bright green taste of asparagus, the creamy fingerlings and firm snap peas, a finely tuned orchestra titillates the senses of taste, sight and smell. The fussiness of this recipe is well worth the effort.

In this recipe, a traditional vinaigrette gets an refreshing Asian makeover - perfect with fresh greens and with Seared Ahi Tuna!

Onion Confit with Balsamic Cream
Naturally sweet onion confit is the perfect condiment for roast meats and poultry (it's also great slathered on a slice of good bread). It's very easy to make and it stores well. We prefer using red onions, but regular yellow cooking onions will work just fine. This recipe is easy to multiply, so make a big batch in advance, keep it in the fridge and warm a little as needed!

The red wine vinegar adds just the right touch of acidity to keep the bright red color of the rhubarb from disappearing in the cooking process.

Wild Rice Salad with Dried Cranberries
Wild rice, although not really a rice at all, is a true North American native. For many households, it has become a regular part of Thanksgiving family dinners and other festive fall & winter meals.

It refrigerates well and the rich, nutty flavor of this salad, brightened with citrus and laced with plenty of dried cranberries, pecans, celery & ginger, may even taste better the next day as leftovers.

Serves: 4 - 6
Time: 1 hour
