Hello, faithful readers, this guest post is by my wife, Dorothy Hinshaw Patent, and you’re in for a treat. As you’ll read, she loves all kinds of citrus, and I think you’ll be pulled right into her adventures. I should have known better. We’d spent months on the Big Island and visited Kaua’i many times, shopping at farmers’ markets wherever we could. The often dizzying variety of citrus fruits led us to calling anything tangerine-like a “tangie” and realizing that something called a lime might have deep orange insides. Was a large orange-skinned fruit an orange? Table labels at the markets only give prices, usually scribbled on a bit of cardboard e.g. ‘3 for a dollar,” 5 for a bag, not what the fruit actually is. That’s not always helpful!
Thank you, Dorothy dear, for your zingy guest post. Mwah!
Such a treat to see a posting from you, Dorothy! Looking forward to reading more interesting posts from you, also! XoxoC
P.S. it’s matzo time again! Made a small mountain the other day. Thought I’d you, both, and voila, found a new post from you! Yay.
Very fun to read, and learn!
Hi, Dorothy! Great article! Dave and I have been buying fruit from Pearson Ranch and they have true finger limes! I found I liked to cut them in half and then suck out the amazing tiny globules that have a wonderful lime zing! I hope you get to find some "true finger limes"! We love Pomelos!
Dorothy Patent, this definitely stimulated my salivary glands !
