Hi, I am new here and found this forum while searching on line for fresh citron. Does anyone know of an online source? I'm in upstate NY, no specialty food stores nearby.

I have Candied grapefruit and orange peel in the past, but for the past two years, I haven't been able to find fruit with sufficiently think skin (off subject- I have the same problem with watermelon, I cant seem to find any that have a thick rind for pickling). I have seen some online sources for an an familiar variety of white grapefruit crossed with pomelo, has anyone tried those? By the way, I noticed that there are no white grapefruits in the stores this year.

Also, should the fruits be organic? Of course I wash them, but is it safety use the skins?

Thank you.
Lorli

I don't use the peels of citrus unless they are organic. I don't object to the flesh, even if it isn't organic. They usually dye citrus to make it look ripe. They use dyes that are not food safe, because it is assumed that the peel won't be eaten.

Do you have a source for that? It's pretty common for people to use citrus zest in cooking.

Citrus Red 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have read it elsewhere, but that's what was easy to find. I posted that link here a few years ago. I wasn't up for Googling it again.

Source for good citron Now that I have a nearly 2 year supply of citron halves, I can recommend Kalustyans as a source for unchopped citron. Many who do not like citron have not tasted 'good' citron. Used to buy it from a shop in Boston but they're out of business. 3 stars 1 reviews
