  1. Incredible. I’m such a fan of blood oranges that I had blood orange buttercream in my wedding cake. When I was living in Italy I used to eat the best Sicilian oranges. Must be nice to have access to such great fruit. Cool post!


  2. Great photos, I can almost taste the juice! I live in New Cairo Egypt and regularly visit London where I make sure to buy pots of San Giuliano marmalade made using Sicilian citrus fruits – to bring back to Egypt where citrus fruits grow in abundance! I am also a regular visitor to Italy and love everything (well, almost everything) about the country.
