Pear, Satsuma, Apple, Cabbage, Kale, Carrots Leek, Cucumber

I picked up our Full Circle Farm box today.  All those fruits and vegetables to perk up a grey December day.  To remind me that the solstice is two weeks away, and then the days start getting longer. 

"Its fruit is sweet and usually seedless, about the size of other mandarin oranges (Citrus reticulata), smaller than an orange. One of the distinguishing features of the satsuma is the distinctive thin, leathery skin dotted with large and prominent oil glands, which is lightly attached around the fruit, enabling it to be peeled very easily in comparison to other citrus fruits. The satsuma also has particularly delicate flesh, which cannot withstand the effects of careless handling" [Wikipedia]
