Oh, my darling; Clementines, you are delicious!
For the last several years, I’ve been buying these tiny little tangerines around Christmastime, and as far into the new year as they remained sweet and wonderful. In the past, though, it seems like they got sour, dry, and full of seeds as February approached, so I quit buying them until the next holiday season. That was the case this year, until …
Yesterday! My daughter begged me to buy some, saying she’d been eating them at dad’s and they were DELICIOUS. :dubious: Well, I know 17-year-old girls, and they ain’t eating anything they don’t actually love, so I bought a couple bags of them last night.
Do you, too, love Clementines? Anyone know why they are available and sweet here in July, when previously it was only winter? (I think they are grown in Spain. Nava?) Or was I totally wrong in that whole supposition and they’re always around, growing someone lovely in the world?
