I’ve always associated citrus with summertime. Ice cold lemonades, limeades, and such bring memories of hot summers. Imagine my surprise when I finally learned that winter is the peak season for citrus fruits!
Winter needs as much pops of color as possible. That’s why I love blood oranges so much. I’m always so excited when I start seeing them for sale. I love the anticipation of slicing into them and seeing the beautiful colors inside. Sometimes they’re super bright orange, other times a rich dark red. But the best ones have that fancy ombre thing going on with reds, pinks, and oranges.
