December 2: Satsuma Tangerines
Satsuma tangerines are one of many reasons I firmly believe Japanese culture is superior to most. Sweet, seedless, and easy to peel, satsumas are essentially perfect. But what do I know? I’m pretty lazy. They came into being from a natural genetic mutation of a closely-related mandarin orange, which is yet more evidence supporting a more hands-off approach to life. Bring on the happy accidents. All 5 pounds of them.
