Calamansi a.k.a. Calamondin

My poor Cali is frozen — the twigs are all dried up.  =( I know, I should’ve put him inside the house sooner, but things, as always, got me preoccupied.

In response to Anna on what else we do with calamansi — here are a few “tips”:

  • Calamansi makes a good lemonade.  Squeeze 4-8 fruit to a glass of water, add sugar and stir.
  • Calamansi makes a good marinade for chicken and beef, rubbed on the meat and then seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • It makes a good dipping sauce for dimsum, mixed in with equal parts soy sauce.

Any other suggestions from my friends out there?  Mang Manny?

  1. i like calamansi as a skin whitener. i learned it from an artista back in the philippines. what you do is get 2-3 pieces of calamansi, slice it in half, remove the pits and squeeze the juice while rubbing it on your knees, ankles, elbows, armpits and just about anything that needs whitening (teeth included!) let it stand for 5 minutes then rinse, do it regularly and it is guaranteed that youll have whiter skin/teeth. 😀
    sayang we don’t have calamansi here, but i heard that lemon does the job too!
