Re: Buddha's Hand

Jim: Could you be bold and experiment? Actually taste the thing and let
us know? Us northerners who don't get to see these oddities in every day
life want to know...

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Buddha's Hand

Short answer is I don't know. Never tasted one that I was aware of. But
<br>since it's described as a citron, I assume it is candied and it
tastes <br>something like a kumquat. Most of the "fruit" in commercial
fruitcake <br>turns out to be citron [although not necessarily Buddha's
hand citron] <br>that has been candied and dyed various
colors.<br><br>On Tuesday, May 11, 2004, at 06:33 PM, Andrea H
