Winter Fruits

It is true that to many winter means cookies, pies breads and stews. I love all of these things but I also love fruit and to me, winter means that there are fruits showing up in the grocery store that I don’t normally see during the rest of the year.

Grapefruit is delicious and with winter comes fresh produce from Florida. I love grapefruit in the morning. Delicious.

Clementines are dangerous. They are sweet. They are small and at 34 calories per fruit you can go through a bag in about two days (I’m not saying I’ve ever done this…)

I discovered pomegranates* last winter. Honestly, I don’t know how it took me so long to try pomegranates. They are delicious and also a little bit messy, so if you slice into one, make sure to have plenty of paper towels handy.

What would Christmas be without oranges? Oranges remind me of the holidays because my grandparents always sent big boxes of citrus from Florida.

*It is worth noting that with pomegranates, you only eat the seeds.
