Blood Oranges with Honey
From the outside, blood oranges look like any other orange, but with a red blush. Inside they have the most incredible flesh, ranging in color from pink to burgundy, sometimes with beautiful slashes of brilliant red. Originally grown in Southern Italy, they are now harvested in California and are an excellent complement to any winter salad.
Working over a bowl, remove pith and peel from oranges with a knife; reserve any juice.
In a saucepan, combine honey, lemon juice and four cups of water. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat. Add oranges and reserved juice and let stand until cool. Chill; serve garnished with mint springs.
