Buddha's Hand

This citron is kind of like an lemon or orange but without the juicy flesh, it just has pith (the white stuff) and rind (the skin). The pith is not bitter so the fingers may be cut off, sliced and used in salads, scattered over cooked food or eaten plain. It is often given as a religious offering in Buddhist temples. A Buddha's Hand is also $7.99 at Whole Foods, so we will probably never find out what it tastes like.
