Making the most of winter’s citrus selection, this recipe combines orange juice, blood oranges, and honey, giving these yeasty, light bites a sweet, acidic nip. Special equipment: You’ll need a deep-frying/candy thermometer, a pair of tongs, and a bamboo skimmer. Game plan: If you want supercrisp fritters, keep the honey and blood orange pieces in separate bowls for your guests to dip and garnish as they please. This recipe is pareve.

                                                                  • Yes No 2 tsp active dry yeast
                                                                  • Yes No 5 tsp honey
                                                                  • Yes No 3/4 cup water
                                                                  • Yes No 1 cup all purpose flour
                                                                  • Yes No 1 tsp grated orange zest
                                                                  • Yes No 1/2 tsp kosher salt
                                                                  • Yes No 2 large egg white
                                                                  • Yes No 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
                                                                  • Yes No 1/4 tsp orange flower water
                                                                  • Yes No olive and canola oil
                                                                  • Yes No powdered sugar
                                                                  • Yes No 2 blood orange
                                                                  • Combine yeast and 1 teaspoon of the honey with warm water in a small bowl. Let sit until mixture starts to bubble, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together flour, orange zest, and salt until combined.
                                                                  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites on high until they are glossy and stiff, about 3 minutes; set aside.
                                                                  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add yeast mixture, olive oil, and orange flower water. Gently stir ingredients together until just incorporated.
                                                                  • Carefully fold in whipped egg whites until just incorporated (be careful not to overmix—the batter will be slightly lumpy). Cover the bowl with a cloth and leave in a warm spot until contents look very frothy and have doubled in volume, about an hour.
                                                                  • Fill a large heavy-bottomed pot fitted with a deep-frying thermometer with 3 inches of oil (1/2 olive, 1/2 canola) and heat to 360°F over medium heat. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and set aside. Working in batches, drop rounded tablespoons of dough into hot oil. (Don’t worry about making perfect spheres—crunchy little tails trailing off the fritters are part of the fun.)
                                                                  • Fry until honey-gold, turning as needed with tongs, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to the paper towel-lined baking sheet. Periodically skim any stray bits of dough out of oil. Repeat until all dough has been fried.
                                                                  • Dust fritters generously with powdered sugar and assemble on a serving plate. Drizzle with remaining honey, scatter blood orange segments on top, and serve.
