Limoneira Did It Again!

If you have been following Caring for my Chaos, you may remember back in the fall, I had the opportunity to review and share recipes from Limoneira, a fantastic company in California that grows citrus. (You can find it here.) At that time, they shared their lovely lemons with me. This time, they have oranges!

As you can see in the picture above, my oranges came packed very well and well labelled. I got to try two Cara Cara oranges and two Blood oranges. Blood oranges I have read are used more in recipes and drinks. I even saw a great marmalade recipe, which you will find later in this post. We ate them straight and they were delicious. Very juicy and fresh. Our favorite was the Cara Cara though. So delicious! I really love the way they are shipped too.
It came in this gorgeous green box, well packed in the green grass. Kept fresh the whole way to my house! You have got to check them out!
Check out their website to find out about their operation, visit their store to order your own fruits, health and beauty products and more, follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!
And as promised, here's that great recipe for marmalade I found! It's from Where's My Spoon and is extremely easy!

3 lbs blood oranges
1 cup sugar
Juice of 2 lemons

  1. Peel normally ½ of the blood oranges. Remove the peel of the other half of the oranges with a knife, removing the white pith as well. 
  2. Halve the oranges and carefully remove all the seeds. Process the oranges in the food processor until smooth. You might have to do that in batches.
  3. Pour this puree into a pot, add the sugar and the lemon juice and bring everything to a boil. Cook for about 30 – 40 minutes, uncovered, stirring regularly. Stop the cooking when then jam has thickened and reached the desired consistency. If not thick enough, you can cook it for a little bit longer. It does not get as thick as a jam with pectin.
  4. Pour the jam into clean jars, leave to cool and refrigerate. It will keep for about 10 – 14 days in the fridge.
