My 25-lb box of satsuma mandarins from Snow's Citrus Court arrived yesterday, and if you didn't order any, all I can say is, "neener, neener, neener."
They are sweet as candy, seedless, easy to peel, and just plain fabulous. Much better than the boxed Spanish Clementines or any other satsumas in the markets.
The Snow's web site posted a note 12/14 that said they'd stopped taking orders, so if you didn't send a check you're outta luck. But mark your calendar now for next year and bookmark their site to order in early December 2001:
You can get smaller quantities, but with two teen-age boys still at home and their older brothers headed back for Christmas, my 25 lbs just might last a week.
