James and I try to be mindful of eating foods that come from nearby, but when we’re stuck in the middle of January in New York and everyone knows that there’s so much California citrus begging to be gobbled, we allow ourselves the indulgence of a little transcontinental treat.
When the treat can be turned into evening mood lighting, all the better. We first made these citrus votives while playing cards with family over Christmas—nothing like a little competitive citrus peeling to pair with some competitive card playing—and were shocked by how long the little suckers burned.
