Knowing how to use a product can sometimes be the most daunting part. It can be nice to try something completely different, rather than just eat the oranges as they are (although we think that’s good too!).
Here are our suggestions...
Blood Orange Curd
Zest 1 blood orange. Set aside. Juice 2 blood oranges. Set aside. In a bowl, mix 170 gr of sugar with 4 eggs. Add the orange juice and zests. Pour in a saucepan and cook over low heat until the cream thickens. Remove from heat and add 100 gr of butter in small pieces. Whisk until the cream is smooth.
You can use this chutney in your tarts, pavlovas, and other desserts!
Add To A Savoury Salad
Blood oranges pair very well with Rocket Salad and Burrata, but also all types of radicchio and ricotta!
Peel 4 oranges. Slice the skin very thinly and place in a bowl. Slice the oranges into rounds and add to the sliced peels. Cover with water and put in the fridge for the night. Sterilise your marmalade jars. Transfer the fruit mixture in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer until the water is reduced by 3 / 4. Add 900 gr of sugar and stir well. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes until the mixture is syrupy. Once it’s ready, remove from heat and add 50 ml of lemon juice. Put in your jars.
Cake, Crumble And Tarts…
It’s less original but so good! Add it to your cake preparation. You can also make amazing olive oil cakes!
Add To Your Breakfast!
To start the day off with a boost of vitamins, why not cut slices of blood orange to eat with cereal or porridge?
