My home town is one of Queensland’s main citrus growing regions. In fact, the town is the “Orange Capital of Queensland! In fact there is a ‘Big Orange’ tourist attraction on the way into Gayndah where you can buy fruit during picking season and other local wares.
My parents are beef producers, not citrus growers, but I love supporting the local citrus farmers whenever I go home to visit my parents by purchasing boxes of oranges and mandarins to bring back & share with my friends and family. My parents also bring down lots of citrus whenever they visit too & last time they brought a box of mandarins with them!
While I love supporting the citrus farmers, I am a bit of a fussy mandarin eater. In fact, some might consider it painful how I eat a mandarin! Miss Six loves them however & Miss Three will drink the juice.
I decided that to get some use out of them that I would adapt a recipe from Rachel Khoo’s first book “The Little Paris Kitchen”.
