seven citron beldi!
Is there anything more beautiful than one citron beldi? Oh yes there is. It is when I have seven citron beldi - little squashed turbans of sweet citrus, ready for me to preserve in lemon juice and salt.

Just a gratuitous opportunity for me to post a photograph of my citron beldi swag really. But it does make me very happy indeed!

They look wonderful. Instead of buying some citrons confits today, I'm going to preserve some of my own. Nice to do on a quiet Saturday

I've been intending to preserve them every day since I posted this and yet again the best laid plans . . . perhaps I shall do it today! I need to do it before they end up as potpourri!

Rupert - are you sure you can't get them in Portugal? Perhaps they have another name (or yet another name I should say!!!)
