Farmer Steve’s delivery today included some blood oranges. Oh, and they were sweet too!
While we always enjoy slicing up and simply eating Farmer Steve’s oranges, today, we did something different: Blood Orange Water.
It’s not really a hard recipe… One takes a blood orange and slices it in 1/8th-inch slices, then adds it to some water. In our case we took a 2-inch diameter blood orange, cut it in 1/8th-inch slices and then added half each into two 24oz mason jars.
Why would you want to drink this? Blood Orange is very high in Vitamin C. Also, once you drink your water, you can actually eat the slices whole – peel and everything! The peel and the white “fuzz” is actually what hold most of the nutrients. Also a good source of fiber, Vitamin A and Calcium.
