Default Valencia Oranges

These are the authentic thing

It's too bad there is not an easy (inexpensive) way to ship things over the pond....there's so much good stuff to share!

This basket of fresh picked oranges was dropped off by the neighbor, Deter's wife Sonja.

Time for some mimosa's.....

Now Drake, you are in CO! Snow is normal there right?

It must be the week for giving!! I gave nisporo's and kumkuats to Sonja the day before she gave me the basket of oranges....but then the big score yesterday was a gift of 8 liters of this year's local olive oil from a spanish friend who makes organic (no spray) oil themselves from their trees in the mountains....liquid gold!

His family is over for paella tomorrow so I think it's a hint...must be better with lots of fresh oil

Forgot to mention that this golden oil is distinctively different in color from the previous year's oil which was dark green in color....same trees though!

So, are you bartering olive oil? Or just showing off?

I could offer you some Swiss cheese in return....

XJ,
What's the reason for the differences in colors of the oil?

You are right of course, but I am ready for summer...I grew up in Florida and I miss fresh oranges and kumquats. Fresh oil yum!

Don't worry Jim, I don't really hate you...but I AM jealous.
