A new year
I found this odd looking citron at the grocery store, and learned that it is called Buddha's Hand. It has a lemony odor and it is supposed to be lucky to have one in your home around the new year. I used it to make marmalade, so that the good fortune could be shared. It's funny, I don't like jellies and I especially don't like marmalade, but I am addicted to this -- I scraped out the foam from the pan to use on toast. If eating Buddha's Hand jam brings good fortune, 2010 should be a very good year.
