Fresh and Squeezy!
Cool off the summer nights by squeezing fresh citrus from the North Park Farmers’ Market. Bearss limes (also known as Tahiti Limes) from Paradise Valley Ranch, have a slightly spicy, fragrant aroma that makes a delicious limeade, especially with few crushed mint leaves from Suzie’s Farm. They'd also be great for these Indian Lime Pickles. In fact, if you get these into production, please take our Vendor 101 class and let us help you establish a creative pickle booth at local farmers' markets. But we digress. We were talking about citrus.
Oro blancos from Gilbert Quintos are a hybrid of grapefruits and pomelos that are sweeter, lower in acidity and lack the characteristic bitterness of other grapefruits. Juice a couple for breakfast. If R&L Farms gives you Eureka lemons, make lemonade! Sweeten it with orange blossom honey from Meljess Bees for a great flavor; add pureed strawberries from JR Organics or blackberries and blueberries from Smit for a splash of color. Take it squeezy!
