Editor: What a wonderful gift! I always feel compelled to eat as many blood oranges as possible when they’re in season, and enjoy them fresh or in desserts. Curd has always been my favorite expression of citrus, as it shows off their flavor and acidity. Kelli recently put together a collection of curd recipes that includes blood orange, which might be helpful.

Many other blood orange dessert are waiting. I listed a few more below. Kitchn readers, how do you take advantage of blood orange season?
