to eat right now: blood oranges

Megan B has a good rule of thumb: If you can get a large amount of a certain fruit or vegetable for cheap, snap it up; that means it’s in season (read: delicious). She encouraged us to try some blood oranges, and we liked them so much we ended up going straight to Trader Joe’s, where we picked up four pounds of them! They’re sweet and luscious as a snack and look gorgeous as a garnish. And they only cost us $1.99/lb. Learn more about blood oranges and find some great recipes at Simply Recipes. –Mary T.
