I found bitter/Seville oranges in plenty this past winter at a local hispanic grocery...(if that helps anyone who'd like to try this). They are drier and more sour than sweet (eating) oranges and the peel is highly fragrant. However, shortly after reading this post last year, I tried making the preserved oranges using blood oranges plus some lime juice- excellent, as was the chatni!

Bitter oranges are grown in California and available for a short time in the winter, somewhere between December and February. They are sometimes called Seville oranges, and i can vouch that the streets of the old parts of Sevilla, Spain, are lined with them, and they're heavy with fruit in December and January. Pelicano mentions a citrus that neroli oil comes from. This is the Bergamot orange, which is also used to flavor Earl Grey tea. Bergamot oranges (which look like small, very round lemons or limes) are also grown in California and available around the same time as bitter oranges. There is another citrus, called citron in English, which looks a bit like a lemon and has very thick skin and very little pulp. The peel is good candied. WIth the terrible frosts this year, there were smaller than usual crops, but i did find some before the frosts and made candied bitter orange and bergamot orange peel. Next year i'll have to try your spiced orange chutney. Anyone in the SF Bay area can find them at the Berkeley Bowl Market, in Berkeley, when they're in season. Thanks for the yummy recipes, Shilpa!

Wed, 07 Feb 2007 02:40:42 +0000 are an amazing guy. I searched for sometime the other day, but soon lost patience to search. I know atleast 10 types of citrus fruits. Even if the Naranga is kept infront of me, I can't recognise it :(. I am really really thankful to you for finding it out.

shilpa- i am writing way too much on here...i am sorry, but i've found it! i think...:-) i found a web-page that lists the 500(!!!) kinds of citrus fruit grown india...the one called "herale" is and is known in english as "bitter orange", "sour orange", "bigarade orange" or "seville orange" is grown for perfumery, and as a decorative tree. i've seen it in phoenix, AZ...the flowers smell lovely! hope this helps anyone who wants to make this delicious-looking chutney!! (but stay away from it during pregnancy!!!)

shilpa- i read this article and found that i know VERY LITTLE about citrus fruits!! hahaha there are so many kinds..maybe on the bottom of the page you might find which one this is.....but, "naran" is arabic for orange...and it is the root of the english word too, the first "n" was dropped off and the "a" was replaced by an "o"..."eureka" lemons are american lemons...i don't think this fruit for this recipe is easily found here in the US :-(
