Tarocco is the most popular table orange in Italy and is a ‘half- blood’ orange

Wikipedia explains us everything about blood oranges;-).

‘The ‘Tarocco’ is one of the world’s most popular oranges because of its sweetness and juiciness. It has the highest vitamin C content of any orange variety grown in the world, mainly on account of the fertile soil surrounding Mount Etna, and it is easy to peel. The ‘Tarocco’ orange is seedless.’

In the following recipe blood orange is one of the protagonists.

I’m a great fan of deliciousnederland. Our daily cooking, weekdays and ‘special’ days, would be so much more boring without this magazine.

Certain dishes, as this one, will never become dull.

Peal and slice 1 blood orange (remove also the white skin). Keep the juice. Put a little bit of butter on baking paper (on an oven tray). Mix the slices with the butter. Grill shortly in the oven at 250°. Spread the slices on a plate. Put a lucious burrata in the middle (120 grams). Spread the seeds of ½ pomegranate (blog post A perfect day to make a tour through the Crete Senese..). Spread 2 table spoons of chopped pistachio. Add pepper, salt, ½ tea spoon of sumak, 1 tea spoon of nigella seeds and the juice. Finish with a few leaves of fresh mint and a drizzle of olive oil.

This is heavenly delicious!
