Orange You Glad?

If you have never tried a Cara Cara orange, you are missing out on something amazing and beautiful.  

I can appreciate a sweet juicy navel orange.   I usually seek out the bluebird variety but one day my life changed.   Shopping on the Drive,  I happened upon an organic pile of brilliant orange Cara Caras.  I took a gamble and bought six, not knowing if they were any good.  I don't know about you, but my luck with organic oranges have usually ended with a tart taste in my mouth.  These oranges did not disappoint!  I was blown away when I cut into one to reveal a deep orange.  I was already in love at this point but the experience just kept getting better.  The flavour was purely sweet carrying a hint of ruby red grapefruit.  Needless to say, Cara Cara oranges are a new staple in my grocery basket.
