Citrus Season

29 12 2009

Is there anything better than the most perfect piece of fruit?  When my parents were kids they received an orange in their stocking because fruit was so expensive.   Not much has changed, and we still appreciate citrus as much as ever.  Right now you can find perfect Meyers Lemons, and oranges.  Grapefruit still needs a bit more time to ripen, but it leaves us something to look forward to. 

Here is a bit of our harvest.  One orange makes one glass of the most delicious orange juice ever. No added sugar, not from concentrate.  The calamondin (smaller fruit) can also be popped in your mouth, skins and all. 

Adding citrus to your salads, marinades, desserts, seltzers and New Year cocktails can make your season bright.
