Sweet and sour

James Carrier
Mix and match citrus fruits for bright flavors in the dark of winter


Citrus fruits, miraculously, peak just when almost everything else is decidedly out of season, bringing sweetness and light to a month that could use a little brightening up. The variety of citrus now widely available - from tiny kumquats to pummeloes as big as a person's head, and garnet-colored blood oranges to topazlike Ruby grapefruit ― can add zest to any course.

Peel deal

When using citrus fruit, you often have a pile of peels left over; use them in simple candied peel. Use candied peel to enhance baked goods, or dip some in chocolate and serve with coffee.
