14. Tastier Tuna


We’re fans of tuna packed in oil, which comes in tins and jars and has a richer flavor and a meatier texture than standard tuna packed in water. For the best flavor, read the label to make sure the fish is packed in olive oil instead of soybean oil.

It's Blood Orange Season

What’s inside matters most—especially when it comes to vibrant blood oranges. They’re at their peak from December to April.

Buy: Go for fruit that feels firm and heavy (read: juicy). Some varieties have blush markings on the skin; others are more uniformly orange. The flesh ranges from speckled red to deep burgundy, but it’s hard to tell from the skin what color you’ll get. (That’s part of the charm!)

Store: Ripe blood oranges will keep for several days on the counter or for a couple of weeks in the fridge. If you buy them in bulk, remove them from the bag to avoid moisture from forming, which can lead to mold.

Prep: Most blood orange varieties are easy to peel and have few seeds, which makes prep easy. Like many other citrus fruits, blood oranges are often coated with wax polish, so scrub the fruit under warm water if you plan to use the peel.
