Crabtree Farm tips

Orange pith, otherwise known as the slightly bitter white stuff between the peel and the flesh, is high in fibre and contains nearly the same amount of vitamin-C as the flesh, so don’t peel it all off!

Blood Oranges reach peak sweetness in January and February, so that’s the best time to blend, cook, or bake them into beautifully vibrant dishes.
