I was sidetracked by winter citrus this afternoon. It ravished me with its zingy aroma, shiny tart rind and juicy alluring flavor.
See my Salute to Winter Citrus, with more photos (just call me the citrus paparazzi) and a few of my favorite citrus-infused recipes!…
Totally into my work, but feeling those 4pm blues of fatigue, I needed some zing. Energy. Hydration. Winter citrus to the rescue!..
..I took a citrus break to peel open one bright orange farmer’s market satsuma – perfectly chilled from the fridge. Sweet, succulent, velvety in texture. These perfectly sweet, not too acidic gems could even be described as creamy. Like biting into a tall glass of orchard-fresh juice.
My one-satsuma snack quickly turned into a citrus bonanza. I crafted a piled high plate filled with vibrant, vitamin-C infused sunshine: white grapefruit and satsumas.
Dear winter citrus season, please don’t ever leave me. It’s always sunny with a bright orange satsuma in the palm of your hand.
