It’s citrus season. We have hundreds, and they’re delicious. Bright orange tangerines outside the bedroom window and easy to peel, juicy, yummy satsumas in the back yard. The trees are practically groaning under the weight of all the fruit.
Last night as I popped a satsuma section into my mouth, waiting for the explosion of orangey sweetness, I thought, “Wow. It’s like having an orange candy tree except even better.”
If you don’t have your own citrus trees but you live in Louisiana, the farmers’ markets are great places to grab a bag or two or three. Once you get started, you’re not going to want to stop . . .
