Minneola oranges, also known as honeybells due to their shape, are a type of tangelo: a tangerine and pomelo citrus fruit hybrid. Minneola oranges are seedless, sweet-tart, and richly fragrant with a distinctive tangerline-like aroma. These citrus can be peeled and eaten as a quick snack but they truly shine where their heady aroma and subdued acidity can both play a role such as flavoring cocktails, accenting foods, or boosting the flavor of marinades.
Uses: Try substituting minneola oranges for recipes that call for lemon, lime, or meyer lemon. Their balance of sweetness and acidity elevates most foods to new heights.
