Citrus is known for its high vitamin C content- just one orange supplies a full day’s requirement. Oranges, lemons, grapefruit, etc., are great tasting, low-calorie foods which are good sources of fiber, and are low in sodium, cholesterol, and fat.
Add Zest to Just About Any Dish!
Lemon, orange, lime, or grapefruit zest! Citrus zest– just the colorful part of the peel– gives a bright pop of flavor and aroma to any dish such as stews & soups, pasta, casseroles, and more. Just scrub the citrus fruit well before using a fine grater to get the zest. (Avoid the white part of the peel as it is bitter.) If you have extra zest, freeze for the next time!
