What are Cara Cara Oranges?

What are Cara Cara Oranges? They are a cross between 2 different Navels and were first discovered in the mid 70’s in Venezula. They are now largely grown in California. Cara Caras are sweeter, slightly tangy, and less acidic, with a hint of red fruit, like cranberry or blackberry. And if that’s not enough, they’re seedless, too! (sourced from: Kitchn)

This week we are featuring the Emerald City Kraut from Firefly Kitchens: Bright coriander paired with a dash of dill and turmeric — citrus meets pickle! Delicious with tuna, salmon, sandwiches or salads.
