Carrot Orange Salad

Carrot Orange Salad

With the onset of winter, we are cooking with more citrus fruit to fight off colds and germs.  Citrus fruit like oranges, lemons and grapefruits are in season during the winter in California.  The tasty fruit is rich in vitamin C, which boosts the immune system.  Similarly, citrus fruits contain an acid, called citric acid, which helps energize the mind and muscles.  Students in class are using ph paper to test mandarin organes for citric acid.  Students love watching the ph paper change color!  Students are practicing using graters and are grating carrots to make a tart and sweet carrot orange salad.  The salad makes a perfect side to any winter feast.
