Blood Orange Recipes That Are As Beautiful As They Are Delicious

Aside from the fact that they're beautiful.

Winter is a sad time for fresh produce. Fresh berries and leafy greens are replaced by root vegetables -- piles and piles of them. While there's a lot to love about sweet potato, celery root and sunchokes, sometimes a person needs to taste something fresh. And that's why we're ever so grateful for the warm parts of the country -- we're looking at you Cali -- and all the citrus it shares with those of us living under heaps of snow.

Naval oranges, clementines and grapefruit, these are winter's saving graces. And it gets even better, with blood oranges.

Blood oranges taste just like regular oranges, only they're BEAUTIFUL. Their orangey-reddish skin hints to the bright garnet flesh that hides inside. While you can use them just as you would any other orange, we found just the recipes you need to show off how very lovely this citrus fruit is.
