If it is good enough to have a football bowl game named for it, we're pretty sure this is a substantial type of fruit.
As far as we're concerned, citrus certainly deserves the accolades. We love the tanginess of citrus in desserts, meaning that we can make sweet and tart a great combination: you'll love Lemon-Lime Pound Cake, Lemon Muffins, and Lemon Bar Cheesecake as much as we do. When you want to savor the flavors of whole fruit, consider Citrus-Kale Salad packed with navel oranges, a blood orange, and Ruby Red Grapefruit.
Or, let the natural sugars in citrus form the foundation for an incredible glaze in dishes like Citrus-Glazed Ham, or Citrus Roasted Turkey with Lemon Aïoli. Citrus also works well as the acidic ingredient in dressings, meaning that Chicken and White Bean Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette will be perfectly piquant. See citrus as something that can be squeezed or segmented to its fullest potential. Or just peel it and let its juices flow while you enjoy every single bite. Or, let citrus be the secret ingredient in some Citrus Sweet Tea. Now drink up.
