How to Make Blood Orange Preserves | Marmalade

Blood oranges are simply beautiful. Their season is typically December through March.  Don’t miss out on these gems!  

I love this fruit because its interior color is not a reflection its exterior one; a bright orange skin may well reveal a deep, dark, burgundy flesh. Likewise, a skin with more red in it could have a pink or orange flesh. You just never know — you’ll love this little surprise (if you’re anything like me, that is!)  My kids think it’s so “cool!”  

As with regular oranges, blood oranges are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C!

These are absolutely wonderful in salads, in desserts, in sauces, and just on their own.  They are a delightful combination of sweet and sour.  Here I’ve used them to create delicious preserves, which you could also use as a great gift idea when you want to give something that is unique and is more personal.  With a touch of vanilla and a lovely, thick texture, these preserves are absolutely divine! My family especially loves this spread over cream cheese on toast. Yum!
