Citrus: A Little Slice of Sunshine

6 02 2009

Citrus is what’s in season.  It is the perfect item to wake up the senses.  The smell of an orange being peeled is intoxicating.  The sound and the feel of an ever so light mist of a lemon being zested is enticing.  The taste of a juicy blood orange is refreshing.  A perfectly sliced and sectioned grapefruit ready for you when you wake up is a simple treat worth waking up for.  My grandmother used to broil her grapefruit with a little sugar and cinnamon.
