How pretty is that?! Man, I’m loving the all the citrus available right now. This week I went to the Manhattan Fruit Exchange and picked up sweet lemons, sweet limes and sour oranges, 3 varieties I’d never tried. You know what I found out? Sweet lemon and sweet lime don’t really taste like much. Bummer! They have a hint of flavor but really lack the acidity that makes their common counterparts so flavorful. Their rinds smell lovely though, so I’m hoping to use them in a sauce or maybe some muffins. The sour orange kind of tastes like a lemon with a hint of sweet orange. What’s your favorite citrus?
Clockwise from bright red: ruby red grapefruit, sour lime, sour lemon, pomello, blood orange, sour orange.
