What's you favorite way to use blood oranges?

So I picked up a bunch of blood oranges last weekend and after making many blood orange old fashioneds I still have about 6 blood oranges leftover. Any ideas on how to use them? So far I'm thinking in a fennel or beet salad or perhaps a blood orange cake or tart, but I've got no recipes yet. Any favorites out there?

  1. reduce the juice with a little Grand Marnier and perhaps a little ancho chile powder, and mount with butter.
    Serve over grilled fish.

    Blood Orange Margaritas - also good.

    1. Make blood orange curd.
      Take spoon.
      Eat curd.

      I love blood oranges SO much. Last time I used some in cocktails - blood orange juice, X-Rated liqueur, citrus vodka. Yum.

        It also makes a fabulous panna cotta, or a wonderful compote that you can use as a topping for cheesecake or a chocolate cake or tart.
