10 Citrus Desserts

March  5, 2013

While we love our squashes, our root vegetables, our sturdy greens, let's face it: by the beginning of March, winter produce is feeling a bit tired. A bit old. A bit, well, boring.

Citrus -- especially citrus desserts -- are the brightest spots of winter, the things that brighten up our eyes, our plates, our meals. Soon, we'll trade our squashes for strawberries -- but for now we'll gladly hold onto our citrus.

Oh! Think about preserving Winter's citrus bounty --so much fun to break out the Meyer Lemon Marmalade to pair w/ripe and juicy Summer berries! Blood Orange Marmalade can be part of a summer cocktail or creamed (not too vigorously or you'll have butter!) with marscapone and spread on top of brownies any time of year.
