How To Use Trifoliate Citrus Fruit?

How to use

Q: I have a hardy trifoliate citrus tree in my backyard that is loaded with fruit. Do you have any information on how to use this fruit?

A: I have the same situation. I dared a neighbor to taste it and he double-dared me back. My description of the taste is “rotten lemon with an aftertaste of old grapefruit”. The juice is sticky and I had to scrub my lips with a cloth. That said, if you want to try to make something from your overabundance, the Philadelphia Orchard Project,, has online recipes for lemonade and marmalade. The thought of tasting either one makes me gag but you are welcome to try them with the promise you’ll report the results.
