Talking about Jewish ritual food use and kosherness, citrons - |etrog| in
Hebrew - are used on the holiday of Sukkot. After the holiday, when the
fruit's use has been finished, some people make marmalade out of it. I
also know someone who put slices of etrog in a decanter of arak (a
middle-eastern liquor). i don't know why... maybe it does something to
"but God says i'm 21!"
