The last bottle of holiday wine has been drunk, the discarded Christmas trees have been pulped to mulch. It's time to celebrate something new: the arrival of blood oranges.
Citrus season is in full swing, with tangerines, pomelos and Meyer lemons at their most fragrant and alluring. But none have the festive flair of the crimson-fleshed blood orange. And with more growers planting the somewhat finicky fruit, they are fast becoming nearly as easy to find as clementines — at least from now until April.
