Winter citrus recipes: Key Ingredient

The abundance of winter citrus right now is something wonderful to behold. Supermarket shelves are stocked with colorful orbs of oranges, grapefruit and clementines. Mostly I just peel and eat the fruit, but this week’s inspired collection of recipes from Elinor Klivans may prompt me to be a little more adventurous. Here are a few other suggestions from our Recipe Finder:

Blood Orange and Grilled Grapefruit Salad: This colorful salad has cranberries thrown into the mix for some extra tartness.

Orange Bitters: If life hands you oranges . . . make orange bitters.
