Moroccan Blood Oranges
My first encounter with Blood Oranges was while living in what was then known as “West Germany” in the 70s. It was so wonderful on those many grey cold northern European days to enjoy a piece of “exotic “ruby gold fruit from sunny Spain or Italy. Years later while living in the Northern Sierras a Moroccan friend shared the following simple recipe from his homeland with me.
Instructions
  1. Slice oranges.
  2. Place on a freezer proof plate
  3. Sprinkle with cinnamon and chopped mint leaves.
  4. Place in freezer for approx 1-2 hours
  5. Serve with tea as a refreshing treat on hot days or as “afters” with a full meal. They may also be served “unfrozen”.
