Citrus



I felt like eating lots of citrus today, and my old dislike for grapefruit has changed and blossomed into a new thing that I love. Are you enjoying the citrus season? I've been juicing oranges and other citrus like crazy -- fresh squeezed juice is the best.

I'm loving blood oranges with fennel and onions. Can't get enough!

I did an entire citrus-inspired post last week. Definitely helping brighten my winter!

I love citrus but I'm always thrown off by the season. It's such a summer fruit in my heart that I can't fully fathom cold oranges in the Winter. But I love them nonetheless.

I'm loving pink grapefruit in salad with spring mix, red onions, and avocado. Mmmm.

And the citrus looks so pretty against that blue-green background in the photo you posted.

I'm notorious for juicing lemons for homemade lemonade year-round!
Yum!

This image makes me want to just inhale a grapefruit - such a great and clean smell. (and it tastes mighty good too!)

Grapefruits have recently become one of my favorite fruits! Try making homemade orange grapefruit juice. Simple, but so delicious!

Have you heard of Cara Cara oranges? They are all over the grocery stores right now. Apparently, they are a hybrid fruit (orange/grapefruit/raspberry) and are honestly the best tasting citrus...ever.

I love this photo and citrus. Last year I tried making(and eating) orange marmalade for the first time. It was fantastic. I looked forward to it on buttered toast every morning. I highly recommend it.

Great photo.

and I love citrus, especially grapefruit. I have even upgraded to eating it with a grapefruit spoon. (I was unaware of the existence of a grapefruit spoon up until this past year.)

Beautiful photo!
May I ask what kind of camera you use?

okay its going to sounds nuts but THE BEST thing with grapefruit is a little brown sugar and then pop it into the microwave for a few seconds ... which makes it REALLY juicy and the brown sugar is SO much better than regular.

Hi Kathleen,

I am really excited -- because that one of the first shots I took with my new camera, a Canon 7d.

Thanks everyone for your kind and inspiring citrus ideas!

Warmly,
Rachel
