pom·e·lo.

Winter is a lovely time of year when we are blessed with the bright beauty of citrus. Coming in all shapes and sizes, there is a whole world of citrus out there beyond lemons, oranges, and limes.

Take the pomelo. A fruit with many names: Chinese grapefruit, shaddock, pumelo, pommelo, or pompelmous, to name a few. Colors may vary, but this citrus is recognizable by its large size, pillowy pith, and near floral aromas. As for taste, I find that the flavors range from bitter like lime and sweet like an orange, to tart like yuzu.

My favorite part of working with pomelo is cutting into the yellow-green fruit to reveal the beautiful rose-colored segments of fruit inside. It reminds me of a mosaic of stained glass. A bit of warmth in the winter months.
