Citrus fruits are typically bright in colour and bursting with fresh, tangy, face-spasm-inducing flavour! They have a thick rind, a juicy pulp and are generally eaten fresh, pressed for juice, grated for their rind or preserved in marmalades and zesty pickles. The rind and juice are also used to add flavour to a wide variety of dishes.
