Snackshot of the Day: Blood Orange

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Blood oranges can be found in grocery stores from January to March.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of blood oranges. "Finally, winter is here!" is not something people typically say, unless you're a fan of the blood orange. Then, like me, this is your favorite time of the year. They're only in season for a short time, and you can't find them out of season (and why would you want to anyway?). Blood oranges are not only deliciously sweet but beautifully crimson-colored on the inside. Click here to see 13 Must-Try Blood Orange Recipes.
