Dessert: Fresh Blood Oranges


To choose fresh, juicy and preservative-free oranges, bTaskee recommends picking ripe oranges with yellow spots, thin skin, medium-sized and feel firm when lightly squeezed. Also, if you touch the orange peel and squeeze it gently, you can see the oil secretions. That would be a fresh and delicious orange. 

After you have chosen the most tasty oranges, all you need to do left is cutting them into delicious slices and put them in the fridge for your family. How simple is that?
