More Blood Oranges

Blood Oranges – Blood oranges are juicy, sweet and have a dark red interior and are slightly less acidic than regular table oranges . Originally from Sicily the blood orange has gained in popularity in the US and can be found fresh or in juice form in many grocery stores.

I spun a beautiful batch of blood orange sorbetto this week. It has the most amazing texture, taste and color. I love working with fresh fruits. I can already feel the spring and summer coming around the bend, when our shop converts into an aroma filled party with fresh fruits arriving everyday. Come on peaches, apricots, cherries, nectarines & plums! They will start coming in very soon. This year we are going to get a lot of these fruits from Frog Hollow Farm in California. I have never eaten a peach more divinely sweet and juicy. I cannot wait to work the other fruits. You don’t want to miss our shop this spring and summer, actually you should never miss our shop, or you might miss all the new flavors we are contsantly spinning out. This week we did a heavenly Dark Chocolate, a Milk Chocolate Passion Fruit, a White Chocolate with Rasperry, a Fresh Spearmint with Honey and a Wild Flower Honey (a squeeze of lime juice, a drop of orange juice and lots of wild flower honey). There is no end in sight of the creativity, the art, the pureness and the freshness. This is the best part of the process, because we are always creating something delicious and new.
