I spotted this his bizarre looking item in one of our local supermarkets. The pink circle is actually a polystyrene basket, but those yellow tentacles are the Hand of Buddha.
It’s something I’ve never seen – or even heard of – before, so I wasn’t particularly inclined to shell out fifteen euros (about the same in dollars) to discover what it tasted of.
Apparently, it’s a citrus fruit that has an aroma of lemon blossom, no juice but a mild, sweet pith which can be eaten raw or zested.
At that price, I’ll just take their word for it.
