Before I go! Today, a student brought me yuzu, which are (I guess) in between a mandarin and a grapefruit, as well as yuzu poundcake. I was touched.
On the winter solstice, people give yuzu as gifts. I guess you are supposed to take a yuzu bath on the winter solstice. Uh, how magical does that sound? Since I have had a crazy day, week, month, YEAR, and have to catch a train to Tokyo in the next hour, I am sticking them in the refrigerator until after vacation. But I will ring in the new year, yuzu bath style.
