This is a beautiful example of not only the type of food I like to eat but also the type of images of food I like to see.  Fellow Tumblr-er, Aperture24.tumblr.com, has a lovely collection of photos of the dishes he creates and they definitely inspire me.  Thanks Aperture, keep the good-eats coming!

This morning I made my Spicy Citrus and Herb Salad (see previous post) and had some blood oranges to spare.  I remembered seeing a few months back a gorgeous photo of a simple blood orange dessert on a blog I follow: www.ahouseinthehills.com.  So I decided to try it.  Very delicious and dare I say, Impressive?! (The first image is the original, the second is the one I just made…Okay, so mine isn’t as pretty but I’m sure was just as tasty!)

Blood Orange with Rosemary Infused Honey Glaze

The What:

{makes 4 servings}

6 blood oranges  

1/2 cup honey

3 tablespoons of water

3-4 rosemary sprigs plus extra for garnish

The How:

-use a small sharp knife to cut both ends off one orange. stand on board and run the knife from top to botton, cutting away the peel until just the juicy fruit is showing. place orange on side and slice into rounds. remove seeds and arrange oranges into little stacks, adding rosemary for garnish.

- pound rosemary with a rolling pin or the side of a large knife until the rosemary is bruised and extra aroma and flavor has been released

-combine water, honey and rosemary in a pot and heat on very low setting (avoid boiling).  let mixture cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. 

-remove honey mixture from heat and let sit for 10 minutes

-remove rosemary from honey mixture and drizzle onto orange stacks.

Enjoy! Bon appetit!
