Vaniglia Sanguigno oranges are most commonly grown in Italy. The sweet flavor of the Vaniglia Sanguigno orange is mixed with more tart and acidic varieties such as the Valencia orange, limequat, or Marrakech limonette to create a balanced, sweet-tart juice.
Vaniglia Sanguigno oranges are best suited for raw applications as their sweet flesh and juice are showcased when consumed fresh. The flesh can be sliced or wedged and consumed as a stand-alone snack, or it can be tossed into green salads and fruit bowls. Vaniglia Sanguigno oranges are also popularly juiced and are used in fruit juices, smoothies, syrups, candies, and in baked goods such as cakes, tarts, bars, and muffins. In addition to juicing, the fruit is also used for its zest, which is sprinkled over beverages and cocktails. Vaniglia Sanguigno oranges pair well with herbs such as mint, cilantro, and basil, chocolate, almonds, walnuts, coffee, meats such as poultry, pork, duck, and fish, cardamom, nutmeg, and goat cheese. The fruits will keep for a couple of days at room temperature and 1-2 weeks when stored in the refrigerator.
