Caramel blood oranges with sour cream rice pudding.

The blood orange season is quite brief, so I pounced on them as soon as I saw them. Then had the pleasurable dilemma of what to make with them: blood orange curd? Marmalade? Ice cream? But I'd also been craving rice pudding, so when I saw Diana Henry's recipe for caramel blood oranges with sour cream rice pudding, my path was clear.

There's always a little anxiety surrounding cutting into a blood orange - sometimes they have hardly any red to them at all. These were pleasantly bloody though.

In a word, the whole dish was divine. The sour cream provides a tangy foil to the rich caramel and sweet citrus. Definitely one to make again, even with other citrus when the blood orange season ends.

I am sharing this with I Heart Cooking Clubs for their February potluck.

I love the surprise of cutting into a blood orange, never knowing what to expect. I think the variegated ones like yours are the prettiest. Gorgeous with that dessert.

Beautiful! And what a wonderful combination of flavors and ingredients. Blood orange season is way too short for sure! ;-)

Love blood oranges! What a super way to show them off AND have an amazing dessert besides. Rice pudding is such a comfort food and you've upped it with the oranges. Yum!

Wow!This is an extremely stunning dish!!! Blood oranges certainly are a celebration of color. Yours were in fact full of color and remind me of a sunset. They look perfectly glazed and oh so sticky! I imagine this dessert was somewhat exotic and divine.
