This is a few years old, but you should still exercise caution in eating an etrog

You need to be careful about cooking with an esrog that is grown for beauty rather than for food because the growers use tons of pesticide.

Right. Etrogs aren't sold as a food item, so they aren't subject to the laws governing pesticide levels on food. They tend to have a very high pesticide level.

If you know someone with an etrog tree, you can use them for cooking, but the one you used on Sukkot isn't really safe to eat.

I agree with this. But I make jam using a large Yemenite Esrog which is mostly rind and you can therefore make sure to properly peel off the skin which is where the pesticides reside. It’s also much less bitter than the other Esrogim.

I don’t have a precise recipe. I cut the Esrog into small pieces. Then I boil twice, and dump the liquid each time. This removes much of the bitterness. Then I boil again in a little water, adding sugar per the amount of Esrog in about a 1:1 ratio. My secret is that I also throw in a small jar of orange marmalade to add pectin which will thicken the jam. It also adds some nice color and is of a similar flavor. I let it simmer for about 2 hours.
