Also known as the Fingered Citron, the Buddha’s Hand is one of the oldest citrus fruits. Sometimes described as a “lemon with fingers,” this strange citrus is treasured for its sweet floral fragrance and mild zest. Inside the fruit there is little to no flesh or juice — it’s all rind and pith.
What to do with a Buddha's Hand? Since it's pretty much all rind, you can slice them up to candy or use in baking and other recipes. Buddha’s Hand Citron is also a nice ingredient for infusing into liqueurs and other spirits.
