Refrigerator Blood Orange and Maple Syrup Marmalade

03-DSC00148
Yes it is blood orange time, even in Alaska!  These citrus are similar to other oranges but can be more tart in flavor and can have a berry like flavor to them.  The bright and fragrant citrus helps bring me hope of summer during a cold and dark winter.  This one has been a challenge in particular.  I normally enjoy winter by cross country skiing and appreciating the quiet stillness of a snowy night.  Our snowfall this winter has been near nothing, leaving a layer of dirty ice covering all surfaces.

Speculoos Fudge with Dark Chocolate Ganache and Sea Salt

Also great to give away as a gift or bring to a potluck, especially if you are in danger of eating more than you ought to, which you probably will be.
