I went to the farm shop this morning to buy a box of clementines. Usually at this time of year there are large wooden boxes of Moroccan clementines with glossy dark green leaves.
Today they only had small cartons.
No green leaves, but the colourful box more than made up for it.
I've no idea where they have come from but the box is covered with Dutch writing (I think) -I'm assuming they haven't been grown in Holland. On the side of the box it says 'met stickervel'. I think that must 'with stickers' because underneath the clementines was a sheet of stickers.
I think it all has something to do with Sinterklass and Zwarte Piet but my Dutch is non-existant so don't take my word for it.
My daughter had fun.
They are sweet and seedless.
