Fresh Oranges Off The Tree @ MITTAGONG

Fresh Oranges Off The Tree @ MITTAGONG

There is nothing like the smell and taste of an orange picked freshly off a tree! I'm not one to go for oranges when shopping but off the tree, yes please! Absolutely delicious and so different to the ones you buy at the shops!

Its funny how certain smells trigger memories and are so strongly associated it takes you straight back! This is fresh citrus off the tree for me, as a kid we used to visit my godparents up north who lived on a farm with the farm house surrounded by citrus trees. I remember so clearly lounging on the verandah of the old farm house and big beautiful mandarin trees hanging over the deck, you could just reach up and pick them! And ahhhhh that smell when you peel a fresh citrus fruit! So sweet and fresh!

Looking super tired and sick with the flu here but when you can go in the back yard, pick some oranges and make yourself a freshly squeezed orange juice its not so bad.... On the mend!
