Waiting for Thanksgiving
Better than turkey, dressing, and gravy, are seasonal oranges straight off the tree. Our backyard "Amber Sweet" orange tree always bears ripe fruit right at Thanksgiving, as if to purposely offer up some natural goodness to the occasion!
Above is a photo of the fruit's progress so far this season. In two weeks, they will be perfect!
Amber Sweets are juicing oranges and all you have to do is cut one open to see those golden drops of sweet juice gushing out. They are fabulous to just eat after peeling but you must eat them over a bowl!
Last year's harvest was the best yet and we hope for a great one this year!
