I am a simple girl, with simple dreams. I can honestly say that one of my big life goals is to taste a mangosteen. It's probably good if it never happens, because I have envisioned such a soft, sweet, marshmallowy fruit that I am sure to be disappointed.
My point is...when I decided that I should try a new fruit this year, I had something exotic in mind.
And then I realized that grocery store fruit in Massachusetts doesn't get much more exciting than persimmons and papayas.
So I felt like I was cheating a bit when I chose a not-so-exotic fruit to try this year. But I find their elegant stems so enchanting, and their smell so divine, it seemed right to finally try a satsuma.
Clementines still win my heart in the citrus category, but satsumas definitely win the beauty contest.
Anything else that should definitely make it onto my to-try list?
