Clockwork Blood Orange Sauce

I recently just watched the movie Clockwork Orange. It was.....very interesting. Hehe. The 1971 film is an adaption of the novel "A Clockwork Orange," written in 1962. I would share the plot with you (if I could), but like many things in this world it's complicated. So, my inspiration for this recipe was to create something simple, less complicated, using my favorite ingredient. Blood oranges.

Blood Orange Sauce:

4 blood oranges
6 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest


1. Cut oranges in halves and use a juicer to retrieve as much blood orange juice as you can. (Do not throw away orange rinds.)
2. In a medium saucepan, combine blood orange juice with the sugar. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
3. Use a grater to create zest from the orange rinds. Add to the saucepan.
4. Increase heat and boil until the sauce is reduced (about 20 minutes.) It should be thick and syrup like.

You can add the blood orange sauce as a glaze for duck, pork, brocolli or sweet potatoes. Also try pouring the sauce over a bowl of vanilla ice cream with fresh cut strawberries.
