Over the last three and a half months, while my body has been shrinking to a svelte weight, one of my pleasures has been discovering oranges again for the first time. Last week I grabbed a bag of these Cara Cara Oranges, which I have been cutting up everyday for my youngest son and I (my other two guys don't love them the way we do) to enjoy...
The Cara Cara have a rosy almost pink flesh
Sweet, juicy, and low in acid
Believed to be a cross between a Washington and Brazilian Bahia Navel
This delicious navel orange "offers a sweet juicy taste that blends the flavors of a tangerine with a subtle hint of a grapefruit." It's grown in the San Joaquin Valley and has a limited availability through April.
I hope you will be singing "Cara Mia" too!
