Because most of the citrus fruit have similar texture, you can try this recipe with a blood orange, or if you like acidity and bitterness which some citruses brings to the table, you can even try with grapefruit or lemon. You'll need to add some more sugar. We will try and let you know.
If you get slightly burnt color on the orange slices on the orange slices, don't worry, it doesn't affect the taste at all.
