We got a box of blood oranges and kiwis from Frog Hollow Farm. Sadly that particular box is no longer available in the store because they are two of Amaya's favorite fruits. Ordering fruit from California is not a quick decision for me, the shipping alone is daunting. But sometimes we really need that extra bit of inspiration in the kitchen. When the fruit arrives I do my best to make the most of it. To be honest Amaya eats all of the kiwis herself because they are her favorites. I will only buy her organic ones so she doesn't get them very often. Then we share the oranges. I zest each one before peeling and use the fragrant skin to make syrup. After the first batch I just keep adding fresh zest to the syrup so it can infuse. Then when I add the syrup to sodas or drinks it gets muddled in and strained out. Here we've topped off sparkling water with a generous splash of syrup and freshly squeezed blood orange juice. It's my home made version of Aranciata Rossa and it made a gray afternoon feel bright and full of sunshine.
