My New Favorite Fruit and a Great Game Day Recipe

The blood orange is a variety of orange that has crimson almost blood colored flesh. The color is de to presence of anthocyanins. The antioxidant pigments are common in flowers and fruit but not so common in citrus fruits. At times the dark coloring shows up on the rind as well. Another difference is the skin can be tougher and harder to peel than that of other oranges. 

1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed blood orange juice about 5 oranges
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1 clove garlic minced
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp red chili flakes
1 tsp cayenne pepper powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp cold water
2 14.4 oz. packages Hillshire Farm® Beef Lit'l Smokies® sausages
Chopped chives or scallions for garnish

Add freshly squeezed blood orange juice, onions, garlic, brown sugar, vinegar, and spices to a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a small bowl, whisk together corn starch and cold water, then stir into the sauce. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes until sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, add Lit'l Smokies® sausages to a crockpot set of high heat, when the sauce is ready, pour it over the Lit'l Smokies® sausages and cook on high until the sausages register a temperature of 170 degrees F. About 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve straight out of the crockpot or transfer to a serving dish, garnish with chives or scallions, and serve with forks or toothpicks.
Reduce crockpot to warm if any sausages are left in it.

if you can not find blood oranges then ruby red grapefruits substitute well.
