Zest It up!

Bitter Orange Spoon Sweets 3

This week we're going to Zest It Up ... diving into all those lovely Nigel Slater recipes that feature endlessly versatile citrus fruits.

Oranges, lemons, mandarins, tangelos, tangerines, grapefruit, limes, clementines, kumquats, even those extraordinary looking Buddha's hands, if you're lucky enough to be able to find one - the variety of citrus fruit available is incredible.  And even more limitless are the uses to which you can put them.  Citrus lends itself to both sweet and savoury applications.  It can play the starring role as the hero ingredient of your dish, or be the support player which makes all the other ingredients shine.

Whichever way you decide to go, Nigel will be able to help you bring a little sunshine into your week and zest things up.
So get those cookbooks out or look at any of the appropriate online sources, choose any Nigel Slater recipe for a dish to Zest It Up, and post your dish by Sunday 17 August.

Please remember to link a thumbnail image below, and leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your post.

I made the same delicious sorbet that Joyce did. It was wonderful on a hot day.

The most delicious oatmeal cookie sandwiches with a lemony mascarpone filling. It's safe to say we made light work of them!
