Product Focus & Demo!
We’re heading into our second week of the Produce Department’s new weekly Product Focus Sampler, which includes product information, a (really) cool recipe, and Saturday demo. We do this so that you, our dear Co-opers, have an opportunity to sample ingredients that may be new (or perhaps intimidating) to try. While the finished product is not available for you to purchase in the Deli, we hope that these features encourage you to take home the recipe and ingredients and include them in your home food preparation and cooking. We’ll make sure to rotate the types of recipes we feature: baked goodies, raw, vegan & gluten-free friendly, entrees, side dishes, and more.
And now… the Minneola!
Its attractive color; sweet, mild flavor; and juiciness have made Minneola tangelos one of the most popular and plentiful tangerine varieties. With their trademark knob-like formation on the stem end, Minneolas grow large and have a delicious sweet-tart flavor. They peel easily and have a low seed count, making them ideal to cook with.
History: The Minneola tangelo (sometimes misspelled “Mineola”) is a cross between a Duncan grapefruit and a Dancy tangerine. It was released in 1931 by the United States Department of Agriculture Horticultural Research Station in Orlando.
