- 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 the flavor. -Stephen (Steg) "but God says i'm 21!"
