Have You Ever Been In Love~With An Orange? Cara Cara Mia Mine.

Each time we part my heart wants to die
Darling hear my prayer
Cara Mia fair
I'll be your love till the end of time

I was introduced to my new love yesterday.At Raley's grocery store in Turlock, California. To me, all oranges taste the same so I didn't even know the delights of Cara-Cara navel oranges.  So I just grabbed oranges from the top of the heap under a sign that said 99c.

When I came home with my bags of groceries, my in-house food expert and chef extraordinaire, my daughter Alexandra,  announced "Oh, this is a Cara Cara orange" as she was peeling one.  Then she handed me my slice. I popped the pink/orange bit into my mouth. And-voila! This was the best little orange I had ever had--no seeds, super sweet taste with notes of raspberry and mandarin, no icky white strings. Plus it is beautiful. That was it. I was hooked immediately!.


I am going to go back to Raley's and get some more of those luscious Cara Caras. I'd better hurry since this variety of navel oranges has a short season. I can't wait.  I miss my new love already.


Cara Mia why must we say goodbye?
Each time we part my heart wants to die
Darling hear my prayer
Cara Mia fair
I'll be your love till the end of time

Cara Mia mine
Cara Mia mine
Cara Mia mine
