Buddha's hand

  • l

What can you do with buddha's hand fruits? They are a variety of citrus but (stay with me) they are shaped like a tassel. I've heard of the flavored vodkas available from Hangar one, and I'm sure they're amazing, but I wonder what to do with the fruit or with its peel. Every time I see one I imagine exotic and wonderful dishes must be possible, if only one knew the recipes.

      I got 4 of them free a while back and made candied citrus with them. Then I used the candied fruit in cookies and fruitcake.

    2. in addition to candied peel ( there really is no fruit/juice inside), I've heard of, but not tried myself, using it fresh in paper-thin slices in a salad
      the gorgeous shape and amazing perfume lead me to just keep one on the counter for the sheer pleasure
