Blood Oranges--not for the weak of heart

Long week with lots of snow.

Cats are having too much fun with our little Yule Tree.

Given up on the wassail idea. Blech.

There are orange slices drying in the oven as I write this post. I procured two types of oranges, naval and blood oranges. Now here is a confession. I have never bought blood oranges, ever. So when I sliced into the first blood orange for the first time, my reaction was less than pleased. It looked kind of gross, actually. And did not smell as nice and sweet as the naval oranges. And because of the way they looked, I did not taste it either. Is that weird of me? So why did I even get the dumb things? They were next to the navals and I thought, Why Not?  Indeed.

Results of my latest experiment will be posted. Fingers crossed that I did not burn the house down.

I had the same reaction when hubby brought them home by mistake, but I ate one and loved it. Now, I would prefer to have a blood orange rather than a regular one. Give it a try. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Never heard of those before! Knowing me though, I probably would not have even been brave enough to buy them in the first place LOL!!!

Very interesting!

Blood oranges are supposed to be a super food. They are very good for you! Don't dry them all. Eat one!
