What is citron?
Something citrous obviously - but - what?
Here sultanas and raisins are different things - that is they come in different packets. We don't see them labled with the grape they originated from either - at least not in the supermarkets I frequent.
I think that cooking methods and ingredients tend to last - being passed down the distaff line.
A man might look back on the work his grandfather had to do with amusement or distain, but remember his childhood dinners with fondness.
