One of my absolute favorite things about living in Sicily is Blood Orange Season.
Before moving here I had heard of blood oranges but had never seen or tasted one. When I arrived in Sicily I was excited to learn that Sicily is one of the primary producers of Blood Oranges for the world. They are oh so sweet and juicy and I love love love them! A few days ago we bought an entire case and have been eating them with nearly every meal - as dessert, as a salad, a snack, you get the idea.
While I was stateside in January and February I found Blood Oranges in Trader Joes. My mom bought a bag, and while they were not terrible, the did not come close to comparing to Sicilian Blood Oranges. I am savoring every bite this season because this is my last Blood Orange Season living in Sicily. I will miss them oh so much!
