Dating back to the ninth and tenth centuries in Sicily, blood oranges used to be reserved for royalty. Thankfully times have changed, and in the winter months antioxidant rich blood oranges are abundant. These subtly sweet oranges sometimes even have a red grapefruit or raspberry hint to them and are packed with vitamin C, fiber, & potassium. Blood oranges are a perfect addition to your winter salad, favorite dessert & even cocktails!
Edible rind? YES! This sweet and tart grape-size citrus has a sweet edible rind and a tangy, tart flesh. Even the seeds are edible and packed with omega 3 fatty acids. This tiny citrus has tons of health benefits too! They are packed with vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. Originating in China the word kumquat come from the Cantonese words “kam” meaning golden and “kwat” meaning orange. Yum, kumquats…..a ginger & kumquat marmalade with pork on an Asian inspired dish, chutney for your favorite Indian dish or simply candied. Such a diverse small citrus!
