I saw it in a panettone recipe. Does anyone know what it is, how to make it or where to buy it?
cEdar, not cIder :)
Looks like same procedure as for orange or lemon peel!
By the looks of it, cedar = citron.
Or a type of citron called "cedro citron."
Hope this helps.
Citron in English. (Citron - Wikipedia)
Often mistaken for candied lemon but the ‘Classico’ panettone contains, sultanas, candied orange and candied citron.
Thanks Michael! Yes, indeedy.www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/italian-english/cedro
Cost me some $$, and not easy to find -- I better preserve them well.
Found a relatively easy method to candy them.
I'm almost ready to make Chef Pepe's panettone!
However i've only ever seen the ones that resemble a lemon. One would need a lot as the flesh is thick and there's a low ratio of edible fruit inside but my aunt used to make them into jam. Don't know how these other types compare.
Buddha’s hand citron, no seeds, juice or pulp, it’s all zest and pith, but the pith isn’t bitter, instead it is sweet.
Yippie this is a great find for making your candied fruit for your panettone project.
To have found it -- had to order it from a farm. I've never tasted a Buddha's hand. Do you think it'll taste bitter if I boil/pressure-cook it with sugar without blanching it first?
I haven’t tasted one before Yippie, you should cut a bit off and taste it and see if you find it bitter. That will give you a good idea of how it tastes. I’ll be interested to hear what you think and how you end up candying it.
How did it taste uncandied Yippie, I’ve read that the pith isn’t bitter, is that true?
But the bitterness is different from "feet" to "feet". One of them is relatively bitter but I'm pretty sure the sugary flavor will cover it.
P.S. I blanched them per Chef John's advice, and they do taste like slightly bitter gummy candies .
Wow gorgeous, I bet they taste amazing Yippie.
I have never seen these before. Really lovely, before and after.
