I’ve become a big fan of Cara Cara oranges of late. This red-meated orange is amazingly sweet and juicy and lower in acid than others. According to the wikipedia entry, it is an early season orange, available from California from November through April.
I’ve been finding these in the Dallas market at Central Market, Whole Foods, and Market Street. My local Tom Thumb/Safeway isn’t carrying them…maybe next year.
For breakfast tomorrow, I think I’ll try a bowl of Cara Cara orange slices, some fresh blueberries, and a couple of leaves of mint, maybe even making them into a smoothie with some soy milk. I’ll let you know how it goes.
