Featured Produce: Blood Oranges

This year we experienced a slightly late bloom in our citrus crops. This was due to some erratic temperatures and weather conditions. We are happy to say that a favorite of the citrus varieties is now here. The blood orange is a sweet-tart orange that originated in Sicily before the 15th century. Its blood color is due to the presence of anthocyanin, a pigment common in flowers and other fruit but rare in citrus. Anthocyanin is an antioxidant that can help reduce risk of ailments including some age-related illnesses. Blood oranges are probably my favorite juicer of all the citrus family! Enjoy this through March because it won’t be here too long!
