Of all the citrus accessible in the wintertime, my absolute preferred is the blood orange. I to start with encountered blood oranges all-around seven years back at the farmers’ marketplace, and I was curious why this particular sort of orange had the prettiest maroonish pores and skin and the flesh was a magnificent crimson hue, too. I dove into a little container of sample slices for a taste. When I took my initial bite, my eyes opened vast: It was really sweet, slightly tart and brightly flavored. My intellect started out racing — what kind of jams or desserts could I make with this amazing fruit?
At that time, I was seriously into building jam I ran a enterprise component-time and marketed jars online. I even designed jam for a handful of weddings! For me, it is a therapeutic action, from the sweet aroma of slicing the fruits, to marinating the fruit in sugar and herbs, to cooking the combination and lastly canning. My preferred component is observing how the attractive colour of the fruit shines as a result of the jam in the daylight.
