Citrus fruits

Not only is citrus good for you, but a splash of any citrus juice can do wonders for almost any dish that needs a little perking up.

07 Nov 2009

The zest of citrus fruit adds new depth of flavour to anything from cakes and biscuits, to stews and pastas. Lemon or lime juice is excellent as a replacement for vinegar in salad dressings, marinades or instead of other liquid in your favourite dessert recipe.

There's of course more to the citrus family than lemon, limes and oranges. Any food store worth its pomelo will offer minneolas, mandarins, tangerines, kumquats, clementines, satsumas, grapefruit and the absolutely delicious (but quite rare) blood oranges.
