Buddha's Hand Citron
It’s easy to see where the Buddha’s Hand Citron gets its name. This unusually shaped citron’s most obvious features are the long, slender “fingers” projecting from the vibrantly yellow body of the fruit. No wonder that it’s also known as fingered citron. The other obvious feature of the fruit is its delicious fragrance, which has been described as a cross between a lemon and rose.
Prized for its thick, intensely aromatic peel, neither the peel nor pith of the Buddha’s hand is bitter. The Buddha’s Hand really shines when it comes to baked goods, syrups and preserves.
- Replace lemon zest with Buddha’s Hand zest in any recipe for amazing flavor and aroma
- A simple syrup made with Buddha’s Hand infuses its wonderful, sweet citrus flavor into cocktails, iced & hot tea and other beverages.
- Candied or crystallized Buddha’s Hand is great for nibbling or for use in fruitcake or muffins.
Also makes one of the best marmalades ever!
