Our neighbor comes over every so often bearing gifts of more calamondins than we knew what to do. We have our own calamondin tree, but it’s still very small. Her tree is 10-20 years old and is prolific!
Calamondins are small, extremely tart and juicy oranges that grow really well here in Savannah. They’re so tart that you can only tolerate to eat a handful as is, so every year, I look for what else to do with them. Recently, my neighbor and I decided we wanted to make a calamondin pie! It was sooo simple and turned out to be just as delicious as and similar to a key lime pie. It’s definitely not healthy, but as you can see, it tastes so good that I skipped moving it to a plate altogether and dove right in with a spoon! 🍊
