Even though the snow and cold are officially here to stay, at least for a while, this means one good thing has finally made its arrival: fresh, in-season citrus! Despite the gray and dreary weather, we at least have an assortment of vibrant fruits to brighten our kitchens, ranging from juicy oranges to zesty lemons and limes. If you’re looking to make the most of these seasonal fruits, here are six delicious recipes that will add the right amount of zest and sweetness that your meals may be craving this time of year.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
