Eating Esrog jelly

* This article is an excerpt from the above Sefer

Eating Esrog jelly:[1]

Some are accustomed to make Esrog jelly from the Esrog of the Daled Minim. The jelly is consumed on the night of the 15th of Shevat which is the Rosh Hashanah for trees. The consumption of this Esrog jelly is a Segula for women to have an easy birth. [Some[2] are accustomed to also save the Esrog jelly to be eaten on Shavuos.]

The Chabad custom: Some individuals received a directive from the Rebbe to use the Esrog to make jelly. [See Otzer Minhagei Chabad 233 that this instruction was given several times]
