Blood oranges - scary name, amazing fruit. Its crimson, blood coloured flesh comes from anthocyanins, a family of antioxidant pigments common to many flowers and fruit but uncommon in citrus fruits. In addition to the usual citrus flavour, they have a distinct, sweet flavour, with raspberry tones. Seriously, they are delicious. Imagine my joy when I found them at my local supermarket.
The weather here is very unpredictable. It could be sweltering one moment and pouring the next, but most of the time is uncomfortably hot and humid. Days like these, i would kill for a glass of cold water, tea, juice, anything! That feeling of the cold liquid rushing down your throat - indescribable.
