Citrus Season

January 4th, 2014

It’s citrus season here at Chiot’s Run. Since it’s is season in more temperate regions, we order up boxes of various kinds of citrus to brighten up our days. Right now I’m enjoying Rio Red grapefruit from G & S Groves in TX. Grapefruit is my all time favorite kind of citrus to eat. I also got a box of Valencia oranges for Mr Chiots, which is his favorite.

I’m also working on a box of Meyer lemons from Lemon Ladies Orchard (we’ll be doing a giveaway in a few little bit). Earlier this week I made a batch of lemon curd and it’s AMAZING.

Of course with all the citrus I’m making gallons of my citrus infused vinegar to get me through the cleaning year (see my post about it here).

There’s something so happy about citrus, I LOVE it. Perhaps it’s my tropical roots, or maybe it’s just because it really does brighten up a cold winter day!

What’s your favorite kind of citrus?
