Fresh Produce of the Month

Simona at Briciole just put up an absolutely wonderful roundup for the past 'Fresh Produce of the Month', which was centered on cabbage. Go look at it, because it's really inspiring. Thank you so much, Simona, for doing such a great job!

Simona said that she was willing to do two editions, so I took her word for it, and she's also hosting the next edition of the 'Fresh Produce of the Month', which will be centered on citrus fruits-- everything is ok except for oranges and lemons, which were already featured (here and here) for this same event some time ago.
The idea is to try to be as creative as possible, find the most interesting looking citrus fruits you can, and make something interesting with them!
For the logo I took a picture of a Chinese pomelo, which we bought at a Chinese grocery store, as we were suggested by a Chinese person seeing our interest in it. To be really honest with you, this pomelo smelled better than it tasted, but it was definitely worth a try. :)

If you are inspired to participate (and I hope you are), here are the simple rules:

1. Publish a post on your blog with a recipe involving citrus fruits other than oranges or lemons. Add a link to the announcement (either this one or the one on Simona's blog) and mention that it's an entry for the Fresh Produce of the Month event. Feel free to place the logo on your post.
2. Send Simona an email with a link to your post, your blog homepage and your name to me at simositeATmacDOTcom. Specify 'Fresh Produce of the Month: Citrus Fruit' as subject. A photo is optional, though helpful.
3. If you don't have a blog just send Simona an email with your recipe and, if you have a picture of the food you made, that's great: she will add it to the roundup as well.

The deadline for entry submission is February 28th, 2009. Simona will post the roundup soon after.

Note: If you don't receive an answer to your email or a comment on your post within two days of sending me the email, please contact us again: sometimes email messages get lost in cyberspace.

Hi Sam,
wow, those tomatoes are gorgeous! Ehehehe, the Fresh Produce of the Month is evidently hemisphere dependent! :)

Thanks for the link :)
