I don’t think I ever just introduced an ingredient before but Pamelo is currently in season and an item many people are turned off from. This fruit is tradition in South East Asia. Similar smell and outer appearance to a grapefruit but about twice the size. The outer layer of the fruit is very thick. The inside is a bright pink fruit with a similar constancy and texture of an orange. The flavor is a cross between a sweet grape fruit and an orange.
Remove peel. Then slowly remove as much of the “pith” as possible including the thick marerial separating each section of the fruit. The pith is bitter and very think.
Panelo is easily eaten plan or traditionally served with a blend of sugar and chile powder blend for dipping.
Find on at any local Asian grocery store. Enjoy!
