Every Saturday, I have a culinary adventure at my local pazar in Istanbul.
Lately, I've been enchanted by the gigantic piles of blood oranges. And they are so cheap! One week we bought smaller ones - perfect for juicing - for only 5TL for 5 kilos. This week, they cost 10TL (about $6 USD) for 5 kilos (about 11 pounds).
Once we get home, I wash and cut the blood oranges in half. Hubby juices every single one. Our white kitchen counter is full of fuchsia splotches! Thank goodness for Domestos!
Our 5 kilos yields about 2 liters of fresh blood orange juice. Delicious at breakfast time!
