So, this blog is about eating seasonally. And technically, it is the season for all things citrus. But I always have a dilemma about sharing citrussy recipes on Carpe Season…because even though lemons, limes, and oranges are in season right now, they still have to be shipped thousands of miles to get to snow-covered Minnesota: a step in the food chain I’m not thrilled about. Yet, I still eat about eight Cuties a day this time of year. So even though I may not be quite as locally minded as some, let’s celebrate the season with a few frugal recipes that rely on the season’s oranges.
2. Cherry Glazed Country Ribs (with orange zest!) from The Midnight Baker
I often buy country style ribs on sale for super cheap…this version makes good use of cherry preserves and orange zest to make a bright dry rub!
And there’s one more…that I can’t officially endorse, because I’m months away from spinach here…and it’s not ultra-frugal, but I can’t stop thinking about this spinach and feta blood orange salad from Joy the Baker. #whyminnesota?
