i bought all of the remaining decent-looking moro oranges at the local co-op. it was only seven total. i think bozeman's supply is fading.

i don't know if there are any left here in stores that aren't over-ripe.

good, but i wish it tasted more like the moro. instead, it tastes more like the zest from the lemon and tangerine that i put it as the recipe suggested.

I wonder if the rind in there is overpowered by the rest of the sweet stuff. I hope so. And wow that is an awful photo...someone should make it and take a better one.

are they on the way for the 2011 season?

to be honest, i only enjoy the moro when i'm not super depressed (i.e., i liked them in 2008 and 2009, but not in 2010).

i long for this. not the moro, but the time and place. :[

i went to the local food co-op and bought two for $1.40.

i went upstairs to sit and finish installing drivers on the p2110. a girl noticed that i was searching for an outlet, so she offered to plug my cord in for me. i gave her a blood orange. she was studying linear algebra. she enjoyed the moro--she didn't think it would be so tart.

mine was good as well.

i bought three more on my way out.

i shared one moro with sarah (my coworker) and we thought it was kinda bitter and not very good.

the remaining two were pretty decent. those little guys are hit-or-miss.

the co-op got in some large "blood oranges." they aren't very tart. i don't think they're moro.

i need to go back and pick out all of the decent small ones before they spoil!

actually that does sound decent. I always thought their amazing bitterness could only be matched with sugar, but perhaps I've been thinking too close-mindedly

the season is coming to an end. there's only like one guy at the farmer's market with blood oranges right now. and i'm skeptical that they're any good. to be fair, though, our precipitation season ran very late this year, so who knows.
