Is it halfway through the year already? This year has gone by so fast! Thank you all again for being part of our 5th Anniversary, we were thrilled to meet @mercemg3
and give her the grand prize. We will keep you all posted for the next one!
This month we feature the lovely calamansi (or calamondín) is like a fusion between a tangerine and a kumquat. Strangely enough, the calamansi tree is often given an ornamental use rather than a culinary one. My grandmother has a tree in her garden, and most of the time is packed with these little gems. You can juice them like you would a tangerine, or you can blend them all together, straining it the resulting juice. We like to juice them to avoid the bitterness from the skin. We have shared a couple of recipes using calamansi, like this Tangy Poppy Seed Loaf or this Calamansi Pie, but you can easily replace tangerine or even lemon juice with calamansi juice and adapt those recipes. The results are great!
For a friendly reminder, every month we send out a newsletter called Notes, where we share our recipes of the month, the wallpaper of the month as well as some extra goodies. You can subscribe here. So while you wait for our newsletter to arrive, go ahead and download our freebie calendars of the month, for your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. We hope you enjoy them!
