These rather unusually coloured citrus I spied at the Turin Market immediately got my attention and I knew I just had to try them. Some of there eaten but some have made the journey with me to Florence.
I can now give you a name - they are Miyagawa and they originally come from Japan but are now grown in Sicily.
The Florence market has been full of wonderful fruit so I thought why not make an Italian style fruit salad - Macedonia di Frutta using these refreshing citrus fruits with the best of the days market finds.
Macedonia di Frutta/Marinated Fruit Salad
raspberries, hulled and left whole
wild strawberries, left whole
peaches, diced in bite sized pieces
white grapes, halved
fig, cut into bite sized pieces
silician citrus, peeled and cut into half, then broken into segments
melon, cut into small dice
fruit juice, I used a mix of apple and pear
Prosecco, sparkling white wine
Naturally enough you can use whatever fruit you like - this is just what I used. Try to cut the fruit into even-sized pieces
Place all the cut fruit into a sealable bowl then pour in the fruit juice and Prosecco - use enough to just cover the fruit. Make sure you taste and adjust the proportions to suit you.
Chill in the fridge to allow the fruit to macerate.
You can serve this with ice-cream, cream or yoghurt but when in Italy, use gelato!
In this case it's a lovely Fior di Latte Gelato from a local Gelateria (in case you're wondering the dark one is Nocciola, a hazelnut gelato)
