Never having tried one, I was so happy Melissa’s Produce sent me Seville Oranges for recipe testing — they are not like any orange I’ve tasted before.
These oranges are tangy, sour and bitter. Not an orange you’d necessarily want to eat on its own. These super juicy oranges have a deeper, darker orange skin (gorgeous!), the inside fruit is a lighter color, and they have many more seeds than a typical orange. And through all of this, is an incredibly delicious orange flavor!
When I learned that Seville Oranges are most prized for making orange marmalade, I realized they might work perfectly in a pie — a wonderful orange flavor, not too sweet, and a little bit tart. I thought they would work similarly to a Key Limes when added to creamy, rich ingredients. So I decided to blend these two citruses.
