The tough-skinned blood orange is smaller than the average orange, with deep crimson flesh the color of a ruby-red grapefruit. Blood oranges have a unique flavor profile compared to other oranges, being distinctly raspberry-like in addition to the usual citrus notes.
Bright and zesty, this Super Premium EVOO is made with the fresh oil extract of Italian blood oranges. The sweet, slightly tart taste of blood oranges makes this olive oil even more attractive. Piquant but never pithy or bitter, it is clean, bright, citrusy, and almost exotic in aroma. Its versatile flavor profile and fruit forward aroma make this oil a staff and customer favorite. Drizzle it over oven roasted or grilled fish, combine it with your favorite vinegar to dress a salad, or bake into olive oil cakes and muffins. You will love it!
Blood Orange oil is one of our most popular items because of its refreshing flavor and great versatility. Use Blood Orange oil on fish and seafood, or grilled chicken recipes. Try Blood Orange oil on the traditional Sicilian salad of fennel, olives, and blood oranges. Roasted cauliflower comes alive with a sprinkling of Blood Orange oil. A drizzle of Blood Orange oil turns simple homemade mayonnaise or marinades into bright citrusy ones. Combine Blood Orange with any of our fruity balsamic vinegars for a fantastic taste of summer in a vinaigrette [we especially recommend Blueberry, Cinnamon Pear, Cranberry Pear, Dark Chocolate, Espresso, Pineapple, Tangerine or Vanilla Balsamic].
One of our younger staffers combines Blood Orange oil with our Vanilla Balsamic for a "dreamsicle" dressing for spring greens. A tiny spoonful of Blood Orange oil on a plate of fresh melon is decadent and delicious.
