It's a short and sweet blog today. If you've been following our blog, you might remember Sparky talking about Satsumas last year...those fabulously sweet oranges that are grown in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama...They are a Japanese hybrid version of a mandarin orange and can withstand brief cold periods. Cooler weather actually makes them sweeter. They can survive temps below freezing for a few hours, should the mercury dip...They look a little bigger than your ordinary canned mandarin oranges. Easy to peel, no seeds usually, and oh, so sweet! It's satsuma season here in the south!
