Orange you glad it is citrus season?
But seriously, I am obsessed with citrus this year and can’t get enough of the sweet and tangy goodness they provide. I had to open with this knock-knock because my six year old, Adelaide, is obsessed with telling jokes like this lately, so they are on the mind.
I grew up with an orange tree hanging over our hot tub and my family and I loved to just sit in there and eat oranges until we couldn’t anymore. Fresh picked oranges are the absolute best and having a tree in my yard growing up turned me into a citrus snob… I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that most of the time I can’t handle grocery store citrus; it has to be freshly picked off a friend’s tree or from a good vendor at the farmer’s market. A booth at my local market has seriously the best ever citrus, cara cara, paige tangerines, blood oranges, etc. I usually eat them plain before they even make it into a recipe, but if I buy enough I’m capable of saving some to use in a great recipe. Below are twenty delicious citrus recipes for inspiration this citrus season and I will be featuring individual citrus variety round-ups as well in the coming weeks including kumquat, blood oranges, lime, grapefruit, a part two of my previous lemon round-up, and more. Stay tuned!
