Very important loquat journalism update, readers.

Last week, I decided to pick a bunch of loquats on the way home from work — I drove by a loaded tree, asked permission from the homeowner and took home about 5 pounds of these delicious little orange fruits — and made an impromptu video on how to make loquat margaritas.

Loquats are a fun addition to frozen margaritas, no peeling required. (But you do need to remove the seeds.) Addie Broyles / American-Statesman

As you can see, I always make my margaritas a little too thick, but the main takeaway from this video, I think, is how to pop out the seeds so you can then use the loquat for whatever you’d like.

Made anything cook with loquats this year? Might I tempt you with a loquat rosemary simple syrup?

Loquats are easy to forage in some Austin neighborhoods, including Zilker, Bouldin and Travis Heights. Addie Broyles / American-Statesman
