3moretti is a quality producer that grows and distributes the best of Sicilian blood oranges, a highly-prized example of our local abundance, grown with gratitude and cared for with dedication by 3moretti

The blood orange is the literal fruit of Sicily’s sun and volcanic soil.
Not everyone knows that its bright, unmistakable color is the direct result of the place where it grows. Blood oranges owe their coloration not solely to genetics, but to Mt. Etna’s characteristic microclimate.
The wide range of temperatures on the volcano give blood oranges a coloring found nowhere else in the world.
This deep and indivisible relationship with the land binds this fruit, a symbol of Sicily, to the unique climate of the area around Mt. Etna in eastern Sicily—indeed, the incomparable blood orange grows nowhere else.

Tarocco, Sanguinello, and Moro: 3 Ways to Say Healthy

The Tarocco blood orange is the most common varietal and is the name given to a wide range of oranges with tender, reddish, marbled flesh. Prized for their juiciness, Tarocco oranges are the glory of 3moretti’s production.
Sanguinello blood oranges are less common but are appreciated both for their taste and for the compact peel that protects and preserves the flesh inside.
The deepest red of Sicily’s oranges is found in the Moro variety. Its flesh tends to be nearly purple because of a high concentration of blue pigments called anthocyanins, and its aroma is intense and unforgettable.

All blood oranges share high levels of Vitamin C and anthocyanins, elements with antioxidant properties that may also reduce the risk of cancer, as well as such beneficial substances as coumaric acid and hydroxycinnamic acids.

A delicious recipe you can try now!

20-40 minutes

under 10 minutes

serves 4


  • 312 Tbls (50g) sugar
  • 25 cup (100ml) whole milk
  • 312 oz (100g) fine-ground white flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3moretti orange, zested
  • a knob of butter
  • orange marmalade to taste
  • powdered sugar to taste


This recipe brings together a classic of French cooking with 3moretti Sicilian oranges to create a tasty dessert or snack that’s perfect for sharing with good company.

Preparing the batter, which is the basis of this recipe, is the first step. Mix the milk and sugar in a bowl, then gradually add the flour. The important thing is to end up with a smooth batter without lumps that is of the proper consistency. For best results, use a French whisk. Finally, add the egg and the Sicilian orange zest.

Allow the batter to stand in the refrigerator for about ten minutes before moving on to the stove. Rub the surface of an anti-stick pan with butter and heat the pan on a burner. Using a ladle, pour the prepared batter into the pan, beginning in the center and moving outward toward the edges as you pour. At the same time, rotate the pan to distribute the batter evenly as if you were making an omelet. When the crêpe is done on one side, flip to cook the other as well. Fill the crêpe with orange marmalade and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
