Traditionally grown in Spain, these Organic Clementine are tree-ripened and harvested when color and flavor are at their peak. The Clementina Fina Sodea variety is prized for its outstanding taste.   The pleasing floral scent mingles with the spicy zing of this beautiful, easy-to-peel Clementine. Limited availability and a very short season make these Clementine a rare find in the Midwest and ONLY available at Plum Market.

Don’t Be Intimidated by the Kumquat

Filed under: Produce

These olive shaped citrus fruits are widely available during the winter months and many people pass them by, not sure how to eat them or what they’re used for.  The Kumquat is ripe when the color is yellow-orange and can simply be eaten raw.  The rind is sweet and the center is sour (eat them whole, these little guys are juicy!).  If you’re looking to get creative:  slice Kumquats into salads, garnish cocktails with Kumquats (great with pomegranate or cranberry flavors), make a marmalade or preserve, or even candy them for dessert dishes.  So, next time you visit our produce department, don’t overlook this lovely fruit.

When Life Gives You Pink Lemons
Tuesday November 15th 2011, 9:15 pm
Filed under: Produce

Pink lemons have a tangy and tart flavor, a rich lemon scent and very few seeds (if any).  Their leaves are highly fragrant, and are considered the most fragrant among  lemon trees.  Pink lemons become less acidic with age and are used for juice and their zest.   Try using in sorbet and lemonade recipes or make candied pink lemons.
