CITRUS. ‘Tis the season, you know?
Here in the Northeast, we’re spoiled with excellent fruit. Cool springs and sunny summers lead to the ripest melons, juiciest stone fruit, and best apples on earth (sorry, rest of the earth). Our shop is in New Paltz, NY, a small farming town 75 miles north of New York City. The talented and hard-working farmers here ensure we’re well supplied with delicious produce year-round—though “year-round” often means hothouse sprouts and an abundance of rutabagas in wintertime. So, when the blizzards come, I say thanks for the other side of the country, and splurge on California citrus. Right now it’s raining ice from the sky, but I am cozy and warm in my little candy cocoon, bright with blood oranges and tangy with fresh bergamot (more on those later).
The gem of our Valentine’s collection is the Blood Orange Heart: two layers of sparkling sweetness designed to make your Valentine’s celebration extra warm and bright. It’s big enough and crazy-rich enough for two people to feel slightly drunk after sharing it, or three people to make an abundant dessert of it, or however many loved ones you want to share it with to feel sated with sweetness and citrus-happiness.
The first layer is a blood orange caramel made with fresh blood orange juice and tangy bits of preserved blood orange from last year’s citrus bounty. It’s layered with a smooth, endlessly creamy white chocolate ganache spiked with blood orange zest, then enrobed in dark chocolate and topped with a slice of carefully candied blood oranges.
This Blood Orange Heart comes boxed in a special heart-shaped gold box tied with our eco-compostable red ribbon and keeps ten days. Please note that we cannot gift wrap the Blood Orange Heart.
