Looking for Citron
I always make a traditional danish bread at Christmas. It calls for citron (which is similar to the candied fruit used in fruitcakes) but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Any thoughts?
Depending on your location, Surfas is good idea, though they are in Culver City. This is one time of year citron should be easy to get at:
-Von's --look on displays above fresh produce section
-Smart & Final
Only other thought: health food store, like Quinn's
But: if you are doing the work of making bread Why not
-scrape peel of some lemons (without the pith/white),
-make syrup --sugar & water, boiled
-gently steep the rind, till covered
-place sugared peel on parchment to dry and Viola! --Hmmm?
Not sure about candied, but I've seen fresh citron at the Santa Monica Farmer's Market recently. They even have the freaky kind with the digits!
