Comment on Blueberry Clementine-Soaked Cake with Blood Orange Bitters by pat simon.

I found the blood orange bitters offered on Amazon. What I’d really love to know if whether I could safely sub regular oranges for the clementines. Now that the holidays are past I’m finding the quality of the clementines available locally has gone way down–they’re dry and bitter.

Thanks in advance for your take on this.
