Gratitude from A to Z: Oranges

I am grateful for oranges. 

Oranges provide such a wonderful sensory experience. The sharp scent of the oils released into the air as the orange is peeled. Pulling off a segment and enjoying the explosion of sweet juice as you bite into it. 

We take oranges for granted as many types are readily available, but not that long ago oranges were a rare treat. My mother recalls oranges as a cherished gift received in her Christmas stocking. How different to enjoy only one orange each year versus the daily opportunity we have now. 

What is your favourite winter fruit?
