2015.10.24 | 中環卑利街荷李活道口 peel street crosses hollywood road
every autumn, you will see this pleasant green hand-industry/products flourish around almost every street corners in old neighbourhoods for some brief weeks.
cantoneses and hongkongers love aged dried tangerine peels as they have high herbal and gourmet value. many mature ladies at home and in related businesses cherish particularly the home-made type of these traditional treasures. and like cognac, the value of quality dried tangerine peels grows with their age.
do take note, only tangerine from xin hui of guangdong is the real deal; the peel should be intact and pretty, no bruise no lines; slit the fruit on the skin to produce three perfect ‘petals’. then use a string to put peels together into a big ring. hang them under shade and airy places to dry.
