Marinated Blood Oranges

Blood oranges are not in season for very long but my land are they lovely and delicious.

If you’ve never had blood oranges before, they are not as harshly acidic as regular oranges and have a mellow, earthy, subtly sweet flavor that is really fantastic. There are many ways to enjoy blood oranges but using this simple, boozy marinade is one of my favorites. Eat them on their own for a light dessert or over frozen yogurt to spice up a classic.

Makes two small servings

3 blood oranges, supremed

1-2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cointreau or other orange flavored liqueurs

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, allow to marinate for 10 minutes. If less liquid is desired, strain the oranges and serve alone or with frozen yogurt. Enjoy.

    Okay. I am totally one of those pelope that don’t care for tomatoes. I don’t think I’ve ever had a real one straight from the garden though. My step-dad has a bazillion growing out at their place. I think next time I’m over there I’ll have one with salt on it.
