This time of the year, oranges and lemons hang on the trees in Sicily like little suns. It’s still early in the citrus season, but with patience the results will be sweet.
In the shadow of the erupting Mount Etna, Giancarlo Giuseppe Buonanno let me steal oranges off of his trees this afternoon. I filled my pockets! He also cultivates olives for outstanding olive oil. You can purchase it from Gelsomino Imports, LLC in the US.
Orange trees mingle with the olive trees in the orchard at Case di Latomie, Castelvetrano.
