7 Blood Orange Recipes to Try this Season

Every year, toward the end of August, I can hardly contain my excitement. It’s (our wedding anniversary) and blood orange season! I utterly adore them. All dressed in breathtaking hues of orange, crimson and red, their flavour is citrusy and sweet with just a hint of lip-puckering tartness.

Blood Orange Recipes to Try This Season_WholesomeCook

Blood oranges are a versatile fruit and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. They have a short season (August to early Sepetmber here in Australia, March in Europe and March-May in the US) but their sweet flavour and beauty makes up for that mere detail.
