Citrus Skye's in Winter

©Not sure who shot this image.

While reading my newly acquired cookbook by the amazing London based Australian chef Skye Gyngell over the weekend, I almost fell off my chair with embarrassment! According to her chapter on 'Citrus Fruits' she was shocked just as much as I was to learn that citrus are primarily winter fruits! Here I was doing my 'Eating Seasonally Only Thanks' and my favourite fruit speaks the language of winter, chill and darkness, not of summer, sunshine and warmth as I had always thought! Clearly natures way of giving us a sprinkling of glowing golden hope through the dark winter months.
