Berries or Citrus. Can you choose?9

Posted on June 5, 2008 by ChristieEvents

This month I was chosen by the lovely Hillary to participate in her ‘Monthly Mouthful‘. Each month she selects her favourite bloggers and asks them a challenging or interesting food related question. Then she compiles the results on her blog – Chew on That.

This month’s question is “If you had to swear off one or the other for the entire summer, which would it be: berries or citrus?!”

To read all the answers, including mine, click here. Plus, enjoy finding loads of new blogs to read!

You can read more about the Monthly Mouthful here, as well as read the answers to all previous questions.

I’d love to know what you would choose – leave a comment and let me know!

Happy reading, Christie

  • Wow that’s a tough one but it would have to be berries! Citrus is in too many things to swear off it…especially margaritas!

  • Definitely Citrus!
    Citrus fruits in summer are not that good where we are( South Africa), strictly a winter fruit!

  • Kim

    Citrus without a second thought. I really like citrus in the winter, when I crave it the most.

  • I could live without berries for a summer. After all, how many times have you been disappointed by some less-than-spectacular berries? But have you even been disappointed by a lemon?

    Besides, I make this vodka/mint/lemon concoction that will make you forget berries ever existed. And your home address, but that’s not the point!

  • Hi Noble Pig,
    Agreed – although my drink of choice is vodka, soda, fresh lime!

    Hi Rosemary,
    Well that’s sensible, a very easy decision for you!

    Hi Kim,
    You’re right – where would I be without hot water, lemon and honey to soothe a sore throat in the Winter!

    Hi Natty,
    Very true about the berries. Another Vodka lover – yay ;)

  • definitely citrus! berries are what i wait all winter for and citrus is just something i use when i want to cook tasty but lowfat. :-)

  • congrats :). i would swear off the citrus. berries are just too beautiful…ok, call me superficial, but they’re so darn pretty!!!

  • Hi Katy,
    Thanks for choosing one – berries are good in Summer.
    ps – I love your new video post, well done!

    Hi Sophie,
    Thank you – berries are gorgeous and tasty too! Congrats on your Award, by the way.

  • Summer without berries-never! Some of my best memories are picking blackberries with my grandfather. My mother would make pies and my grandmother made jelly. In the winter when we had the jelly, it brought back memories of warmer, juicier days.
