What's In Your Fruit Bowl?

We are looking forward to spring fruit - tiny berries and other fresh treats from the garden. But that doesn't mean we don't have fruit in our fruit bowl now.

Right now I have these tiny clementines - hardly larger than a plum tomato. My hands are tiny and these are still smaller than my palm. They are tart, sweet, and very juicy, with huge seeds that are easy to pop out through the inner skin.

As much as we promote local food here on the blog, citrus is one thing that I at least have no qualms about buying from far away. There are no clementines growing here in Ohio, and it's a luxury and a privilege to have them here in the dreary late winter.

What's in your fruit bowl, here in the late winter?
