Buddha's hand—it's an unusual name for an unusual-looking fruit.
The finger-like strands give the fruit its other name: fingered citron. But "hand" is apt, too—those "fingers" of the fruit come together at a base that holds them all together that looks remarkably like a hand.
Buddha's hand lacks the bitter rind flavor of oranges and lemons, and is perfect for use in fruitcakes or unique cocktails. The candied citron pieces can be stored in a jar at room temperature for a few weeks, but can be refrigerated for up to six months.
