Blueberry and Japanese Yuzu Citrus Muffins, #TwelveLoaves
Japanese mythology refers to the yuzu tree as a holy one. The fruit is said to cure the sick….Maybe the truth does not fall too far from the tree…Yuzu is indeed a citrus. Just like lemons or oranges, yuzu is recommended for those who are ailing from flu and cold symptoms.
Yuzu has a tarter taste than a lemon or a lime but like its cousins provides a pleasant pucker. The slightly acidic Japanese citrus fruit is a good foil for the sweet blueberries. My blueberry and Japanese yuzu citrus muffins are light summer fare. Perfect for an easy-peasy 4th of July breakfast! The recipe is at NinjaBaking.com
