Orange juice surprise


The other day a work friend gave me some oranges from her garden. At the time she told me they were Clementines, but when I cut them in half I was surprised to find the flesh inside was a dark orange/red  colour. When juiced up the 'orange' juice was dark red! (I've got my little helper doing the juicing in this photo shot!).

So I guess the orange must be a type of 'Blood' orange. The juice was absolutely delicious. Shame there was only enough for a couple of glasses!

Interesting. Blood oranges are a seasonal treat here around Christmas time. We don't seem to get them any other time of year.

I'm always kind of grossed out by the name 'blood orange'. They are pretty though! You can't beat fresh orange juice, I wish we could grow them down here.
