Pomelos are a winter citrus and very high in vitamin C. These fruits were used like pineapples to calm coughs.
Pomelos flavor is mild, sweet, and not as bitter or sour as most grapefruit. You can find these fruits in white, pink or red.
It is often combined with other citrus.
These fruits are larger than grapefruit and have a much thicker peel. They can be eaten alone or used in food and drink recipes.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
