I got sick, and I’m still sick, the kind where you sneeze 30 times a day, have no energy, you get chilly then sweaty, and you’re exhausted. Plus no appetite.
I couldn’t even taste food. But what I could taste, fortunately, were blood oranges. Ice cream. Caramel popcorn. I realized that I could taste sugar but not savory flavours.
So I feasted on blood oranges. I started with one of course.
The oranges made me feel good. I was always thirsty so the oranges provided moisture, sweet delicious flavor and relief.
So the next day, when the sickness had not subsided yet, I ate more. I cut them into four’s and then peeled them. I realized I liked them refrigerated. So I ate them cold.
Have you ever eaten these luscious citrus gems?
