Tis the season for the Japanese oranges. Every December boxes of mandarin oranges start showing up in grocery stores. Japanese oranges each wrapped in green tissue paper. Skin that you can peel off with your hands. When I was a child the task was to be able to take it off in one piece. Not overly difficult, but it does require a bit of planning. Sweet and delicious, I had three after buying my first box today. Oppenheimer Group, a produce company in Vancouver lays claim to importing them for more than 100 years. That's who brought the ones I bought today over from Japan. In recent years I've started to see boxes of them from China, Korea and even California, but I still the Japanese ones have the edge. So keep you eyes open for the genuine article and buy the ones from Japan. They may be a little more expensive, but stick with the quality.
