Peak season citrus is the pick of our Peconic Dish columnist Alison Boyd Savage for a celebratory spring dessert. Mineola tangerines, bursting with juice, are plentiful in the supermarkets and their deep orange skin adds rich flavor to a simple moist cake. Enjoy a slice dusted simply with confectioners’ sugar or elevate it to luxury status with silky crème anglaise. Get the recipe in our sister publication, The Peconic Dish.

• This evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. is the monthly Friends of the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library Acoustic Jam Session at the library. Bring your instruments, tapping feet and listening ears.
