{try-me tuesday – the “christmas orange”}

18 Dec

satsuma-1

not to be confused with a clementine or “cutie” that you find in conventional grocery stores, you can typically purchase these tasty delights in most grocery stores, in the produce section… but only in the winter season.

meet the satsuma tangerine… also {rather appropriately} referred to as a “stem and leaf” tangerine…

satsuma-3

or “christmas orange” due to their peak december season — they originate from japan, as do mandarin oranges.  they are seedless, easy-to-peel, and sweet and flavourful.  i’ve never had a bad one!  have you ever tried them?!

satsuma-2

when i lived with my wonderfully spry roommate in manhattan, i brought these home for a snack and put them in a bowl like this.  she left me a note the next morning {as was our ritual} and it read, “i love the fruit, thanks for sharing – what is it?  i thought i woke up to a bouquet of flowers!” hehe.

they ARE rather pretty – like an edible flowering plant.

satsuma-1-3

and i’m telling you, they are out of this world DELICIOUS!

get some.

    I always thought that mandarines were “Christmas oranges.” You’re so educational!

    I love to put a big bowl of these on the table. Better than a vase of flowers. Thanks for the reminder, Audrey!

    K.I.S.S! xx
