Ohhhh Gooodieeeee!

Blood Oranges are back in season!!! Expensive tho....99 cents a pop.

Here is a good recipe for them

Broccoli Rabe (also called Rapini) with Spicy Olive oil Dressing

1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
1 lb broccoli rabe or rapini, trimmed and cut into 3 inch pieces
8 small blood oranges
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
salt and freshly ground pepper

In a small saucepan, combine the olive oil, onion and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Have ready in a large bowl of ice water. Bring a large saucepan 3/4 full of salted water to a boil. Add the rabe/rapini and cook until bright green and slightly soft, about 1 minute. Drain and immediately immerse in the ice water to halt the cooking. Drain again, pat dry, and set aside.

Peel and section the blood oranges. Add the rabe/rapini to the bowl with the oranges and set aside.

Put the vinegar in a small glass bowl. Strain the oil and discard the onion slices and red pepper flakes. Whisking constantly, gradually drizzle the seasoned oil into the vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour the dressing over the orange segments and rabe/rapini and toss to coat well. Serve at room temperature.

Serves 6.

I have a better recipe: Blood Orange Mojitos at Acenar restaurant, downtown San Antonio. They make them with hand-squeezed blood oranges.
