win­ter FRUIT

Better Homes & Gardens - - Food In Season -

These cool-weather beau­ties are only avail­able for a few weeks ev­ery year. Seize them while you can.

POMELO

The largest of the cit­rus fruit, pome­los’ flesh ranges from light yel­low to pink and tastes like sweet grape­fruit with­out the as­sertive bit­ter edge.

QUINCE

Raw quince has a gritty tex­ture and an as­trin­gent fla­vor.

Once cooked, its fla­vor falls be­tween an ap­ple and a pear.

PERSIMMON

Per­sim­mons have a flo­ral sweet­ness and a creamy tex­ture sim­i­lar to pears. Fuyu are fla­vor­ful even when firm—un­like hachiya, which must be soft.

POME­GRAN­ATE

Prized for their ruby ar­ils (seeds), fresh pomegranat­es are an­tiox­i­dant-rich and high in fiber and fo­late. Look for smooth, shiny skin.
