Although I've never met her I feel like Wendy and I are friends. I read her blog every day and look forward to learning what's happening in her life. Her post about MFK Fisher's writing, especially 'The Art of Eating" --a wonderful book-- was a delight. We share many interests which is why, I suppose, I find such affinity with her blog.
I tried the recipe for radiator roasted tangerines and was a bit surprised to find how good they are. Not really having a radiator I was forced to improvise. I used those imported Moroccan clementines sold in boxes this time of year, peeled, picked and plopped the segments on newspaper and put them in my toaster oven with the door left open. I turned the segments once midway in the 90-minutes they spent in the moderate oven. Then, lacking a snowy windowsill nearby I put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Just as Wendy says, the little juicy morsels pop in your mouth, the thinnest skin all crispy and nice, the pulp maybe a bit sweeter, the flavor a bit more intense.
What fun. Thanks Wendy. And, thanks MFK Fisher.
