I do love to make a new discovery and proudly present my citrus discovery for January 2018:
and what wonderful little gems they are.
Reliably identified as the sour orange hybrid Citrus bergamia Risso, I discovered them at my organic market this week, imported from Morrocco (this is the only time of year where I am to be found blogging about imported produce!), and I snapped them up purely out of curiosity.
And I am so glad I did!
“Grapefruit overtones, a spicy galangal-like punch (which calms down once cooked), as well as orange and lemon nuancing in the background, becoming lingering lime once cooked”.
That is my bergamot sound bite.
And this is what I have done with them so far: a classic soft set marmalade of delectable dimensions 🙂
