Visiting local citrus farms at this time of year is a perk of residing in Florida. I took my girls to the Showcase of Citrus, not really knowing what to expect as we pulled up to what looked like a weathered roadside farmer’s market. The girls were mesmerized when the staff handed us each a bag and drew on a map indicating what citrus was prime for picking.

The girls ran up and down the rows pushing back branches to find the perfect piece of citrus to pick. The grove seemed like it went on forever and we spent quite a bit of time walking and enjoying the sites and smells.

Both girls were very proud to bring home their bag of citrus for our family to consume over the coming weeks.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite citrus recipes for you and your family to enjoy this citrus season!
