I should have begun with Sunrise
and Sunsets also often have orange.
A Tequila Sunrise also has an orange layer.
Darling clementines – these are my favorite fruit of winter. I save the peels in a jar in my kitchen because I love the scent. My mother says that her mother used to keep orange peels on the back of the old black stove for the same reason. And I love the name. Well played clementine people, well played.
Carrots – don’t come in just orange, and originally were violet or black, and yellow and red, as well as white. Violet and red carrots cross to make orange carrots, (it’s not a color wheel, it’s genetics) a hybrid in honor of the Prince of Orange, who was ruling the Netherlands in the 17th century. By the 18th century it was a common color for carrots throughout Europe.
Golden Gravy from Valicenti Organics from Hollis NH(www.gimmiespaghetti.com)is made with butternut squash
which are pretty darn near close to perfect just the way they are (in dried form), and brought closer to heaven if they’re half dipped in dark chocolate (thank you Judith Campbell)
