A Bit of History

The Spanish brought oranges and lemons to Florida in the 16th century. They were later shipped to northern ports were they were a favorite of European Americans, including George Washington whose enslaved chef Hercules likely used them. Fruits were part of some of the most exquisite 18th and 19th century desserts.
