Buddha’s Hand Citron

I was offered this intriguing fruit at a cookery class that I facilitated last weekend in Canberra.

Buddha's Hand Citron #1:

It’s known as Buddha’s Hand Citron, or fingered cirtron [Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis] and is also known as in Japan as bushukan.

Buddha's Hand Citron #2:

The origin of the Buddha’s hand plant can be traced back to Northeastern India and China.

Buddha's Hand Citron #3:

I am thinking of making candied citron out of it, since it is purely peel without any fruit or juice inside, but not at all bitter.

candied-citron:

I’ll keep you posted on the outcome.
