It's that time of year when all the Master Food Preservers get marmalade fever. It is a banner year for citrus here in Southern California and getting sweeter every week.

Even though your citrus may have been damaged it is still ok for consumption for a couple of weeks. Why not pick your extra fruit, box it up and take it to your nearest food pantry? There are many families in need of food this winter. Here is the link to Fresno Master Gardener's PAR website: http://groups.ucanr.org/mgfresno/PAR/ for a list of local food pantries.
There is also an abundance of persimmons and pomegranates this time of year. They can also be dropped off at your nearest food pantry.
