How the star anise got married with the tiny Japanese orange…
An avalanche of mikan, the Japanese mandarin oranges. The season is really starting now. These are small like ping pong balls and irregular, but totally delicious.
Easy to peel.
Juicy. I’ve eaten tons already.
And cooked a few with star anise into a spicy marmelade. Not marmalade. It’s any citrus jam/compote for in French. But this one is not any. It’s specially delicious.
And it’s … addictive. Already made another batch.
