Seville Orange Recipes

Seville oranges have arrived in our Farm Shop. To the Tudors, these bitter globes were ‘golden apples’, a luxury to brighten up the winter.

Sevilles are traditionally used to make marmalade and have a very short season so get that pan bubbling away soon. As an alternative they can be used to make an orange liqueur, there is just a bit of a wait before you can drink it!

Blood Orange Roasted Chicken

Blood oranges have arrived in our Farm Shop. The blood orange is a variety of orange (Citrus × sinensis) with crimson, almost blood-coloured flesh. Along with their lovely red colour, blood oranges tend to have a noticeable and delicious raspberry edge to their flavour.
