Who’s there?


Orange who?

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!

  16. Joy Stewart says

    I can’t find the link for the citrus cake with the mint leaves. Or the tart next to it. Where are those recipes?

    • Hi Joy, my apologies… both of those recipes have been taken down off of the web since I posted this round-up and are broken links which is why you can no longer find them in the post.
