I am blessed to have wonderful, kind friends that ship something that looks like sunshine in a jar all the way from Japan. My good friend Wakako sent me this marmalade made from Hassaku oranges. I can't wait to try it. My favorite part (besides getting cool packages in the mail) was reading about her harvest and how she made it - here in a blog post.
You can learn more about her families adventure (currently on sabbatical on a small island in Japan) via her blog baum-kuchen. It's fascinating. It's educational. And it's incredibly inspirational!!
Thank you Wakako, FB and Roo for the love...all the way from Japan.
