AJRimmer Advent Day 22
I’m not quite sure how satsuma differs from orange. Is orange the general term like apple and satuma is a type like fuji or granny smith? I have some google searching to do! I saw one review where someone compared it to the taste of a chocolate orange and I feel like that is a pretty good description. It has a similar flavor and boldness. There is a little bit of a tart tang to it and it lacks the depth that actual chocolate brings to the chocolate orange. The finish is a bright orange flavor, but I’m not getting any spice or the cake association. Either way it’s a nice cup to start my morning with!
Update after my google search: I might have a satsuma tree growing in the backyard! There is some sort of citrus tree that I ignore and the rats from the neighbor’s garage devour. I have a sensitivity to the citric acid, so I have to pick and choose when to eat citrus (flavoring like in tea is fine) and the fruit on this tree doesn’t make the cut. In my quick search I ran across a recipe that uses zest from the fruit for a curd and I think I could eat that. I’m going to have to give it a go!
