    Oh my, we have a huge loquat tree that is now covered with lovely golden globes and we don’t know how to prepare them? A big family of Gypsy Crows move in each year and reap the harvest and then leave. They have just arrived for the feast. We have gathered a few and will do this dish. do you peel the fruit? love your blog. best, s
