Japanese Mikan Mandarin Oranges
Clearly it's mandarin orange season now, judging by the heaps of them on sale at supermarkets these days. And being spoiled by Japanese fruit lately, I won't settle for less than the unshu mikan variety, which are perfect in every way: they are juicy, seedless, and easy to peel. And these little things pack a tangy punch, unlike that sweet canned stuff.
More importantly, these are light years ahead of that tasteless and oftentimes dried out version that one usually gets during Lunar New Year. If people gave out oranges of this quality instead, I'd be fighting to keep them all for myself rather than giving them away. I love these things!
