My first Mellow Yellow Monday Post

Well, here in Israel we've reached yet another holiday - Sukkot. Sukkot is a holiday with a lot of props - we build huts, and we buy all sorts of interesting plants. One of these is a fruit, called an Etrog, or citron, in English. Citrons come in many types - some are smooth, some are bumpy, some are large, some are small, and I've seen them in yellow, green, and even orange! One can find them for sale all over the country at this time of year, and I caught these on display this past Friday afternoon, while waiting for my husband and daughter to get a pizza:

Happy Sukkot, everyone!

What an interesting looking fruit. What do you do with it for Sukkot?

I am googling Sukkot and trying to absorb what it is...also wondering about the fruit and what kind of taste/texture it has. All interesting.

Hmm... I may have bit off more than I can chew :) A concise explanation can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Species
Although the etrog isn't very sweet, a lot of people make jam or liqueur out of it after the holiday...
