Pummelo, Red (Citrus grandis)

(Pummelo)  As the scientific name implies, the pummelo is the largest of all citrus fruits.  Unfortunately, it is also sold at an inflated price.  The pummelo is the fruit from which the modern grapefruit was developed, but they are much sweeter than most grapefruits.  When purchasing pummelos, select the heavier solid fruit and avoid the light weight ones, as they are of inferior quality and most likely dried out on the inside.  They are easy to peel and relatively easy to section.  One of the delightful features of the pummelo is its wonderful aroma which emanates from the peel.  See nutritional information below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-30)
