Playing with my food

I remember seeing pictures of blood oranges when I was in grade school and was fascinated by the deep red color of he flesh and was curious about the taste of the strange looking orange.

A few days ago picked up a couple Moro blood oranges.

This skin has a reddish tinge like a regular orange that is sunburned from too much direct sunlight.

The flesh is deep red where the juice is slightly red like a diluted cranberry cocktail.

Close-up the flesh appears to be sushi-grade maguro tuna. Thank goodness we don't need soy sauce and wasabi to eat this orange.

The taste is sweet with an orange/tangerine taste. It's not as tart/acidic as a regular orange, but not as sweet as a tangerine. Overall, very nice.
