soon. I keep forgetting to post about these because they are just oranges, so how interesting could they really be? VERY interesting, if you must know. Interesting enough that I’ve been eating at least 2 per day for the last month and a half.
The Cara Cara.
Aren’t they pretty with their rosy fruit? Pretty is all good and fine, but pretty isn’t the point. They are so amazingly delicious I cannot stop thinking about them. And here’s the sad part: limited season. You can only get them this time of year at our markets, (jan, feb, march), so you’d best be locating them soon. I’m going over to the farmers market at lunch to fill my baggu with our weekly supply. Actually semi-weekly supply because we just bought a bunch on Sunday and they are gone.
I’ve seen them at Whole Foods too, but if at all possible try to get them from a farmer. I don’t want you to be disappointed when you taste the Whole Foods variety and think they are just the same as regular navels. I assure you they are not. They are super sweet and super tangy at the same time. Literally perfection.
