Rangpur limes! Our new Co-op marmalade, thanks to Gail

Today Gail, a friend of the Co-op, dropped by with a nice bag of Rangpur limes that she had harvested from her tree.  These are actually a bitter orange, not a lime at all. They look marvelous, and although you may be tempted to peel one and eat it like a tangerine, you will be ‘quite surprised’.  These are wonderfully acidic, bitter and aromatic, perfect for marmalade and absolutely not for out of hand eating.  (ok, I tried, just so I could be sure.  And I am so sure.)  I will prep and soak the fruit, and we’ll make the marmalade Friday afternoon. Thanks so much, Gail, cannot wait to play with these exotic citrus gems.  And we are still on the lookout for kumquats, speaking of citrus fun.
