A type of orange that is more commonly known as the blood orange and features an orange-red skin and deep red flesh. It is sweet like a regular orange, but it has a stronger flavor and is less acidic. When selecting pigmented oranges, avoid any that have soft, spongy areas and skin that is discolored with a rough or wrinkled appearance. They can be used like any other orange and are available in well-stocked supermarkets. Pigmented oranges are also used to produce blood orange olive oil, which has been on the market for only a few years. It is a blend of extra virgin olive oil and crushed pigmented oranges, which is used as a salad dressing, a condiment for fish and meat dishes, and to add flavor to numerous recipes.
