UPDATE: I think I need recipes that require lots of lemons. I have already frozen juice and supplied the neighborhood.

I have gained 5 pounds trying a few of those wonderful ideas what to do with my abundance of Meyers Lemon. Thank you to all who contributed. Could use some "lose weight easy " suggestions. 😊😊😊

lemon spread or some call it lemon butter. but it uses a few eggs. Also I love maramalade. recipe is 2 lemons, 1 grapefruit, 1 sweet orange. 3 pounds of sugar to 3 pints of water. I am ever so slightly envious of your fabulous tree

Just baked another lemon cake. Family is coming over. I have dehydrated slices for tea in the future and pulverized the dehydrated rinds. Still have to try marmalade. Maybe tomorrow.

Beautiful send me some hehehe... I would love this in my yard but it is too cold in the winter here. Happy baking! I freeze the juice and use a rasp on the peel. I dry the peels for later and take out the juice from the freezer when I need some.

Yummi, have you ever tried lemon-ginger syrup for lemonade or garlic-lemon-ginger paste or lemon-onion cough syrup ? A longdrink with elderflower syrup, lemon juice and Tonic Water or Bitter Lemon and a dash of Wodka or Dry Gin, hmmmmmmmmmm.
Many recipes on You Tube,
happy cooking, hugs

Very interesting. I had never heard of the above. I will investigate. Thank you

Looks, like the tree surviwed the frost in 12-2017. I forgot to mention the Moroccan Saltlemons. Very aromatic and interesting in chickpea salads, meat dishes, mixed salads, hugs

Thank you for all the links. It was my blood orange tree that the truck had mowed down. I am still morning after that tree

as an anticancer food, freeze them, grated them and sprinkle them on every thing you eat or cook!!!!

Thank you. Good idea. I already freeze them in ice cube trays and pop a cube in my drinking water. Makes it more pleasant.

I will. Thank you.

Google Shaker Lemon Pie -very different and tart pie and uses slices of lemon, not just the juice, so a very pretty presentation. Congratulations on your bumper crop.

Ohooo you could make lots of ginger beer. A very nice drink on a hot day. Hugs

Thank you. I had never heard of ginger beer. Will check on it

shirley124 by shirley124 14 Dec 2018

I used to make it every summer. I used a plant made up of ginger, sugar and water. Feed it each day for (I forget would have to check recipe) Makes a lovely fizzy thirst quenching drink

Yes it is. I am blessed.

I love Lemon Delicious ( a pudding style dessert). Lemon Meringue Pie, and a Donna Hay recipe that I use that's light and fluffy. I am sure there are lots of other recipes to use up those delicious lemons. Love Chris

Here is Donna Hay's recipe and there's only 3 ingredients!!!

500 ml single cream (runny cream)
110 g caster sugar
80 ml lemon juice
raspberries, to serve
1. Place the cream and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.

2. Allow to simmer for 6 minutes or until the cream has reduced slightly. Add the lemon juice and simmer for a further 2 minutes.

3. Pour into 180ml capacity cups, glasses or ramekins and refrigerate until set. Serve with fresh raspberries.

For those who don't use Metric measurements here are the Imperial measurements -
2 cups single (pouring) cream
½ cup caster (superfine) sugar
⅓ Cup lemon juice
Raspberries, to serve

That sounds good. Thank you

Thank you, will try this out the next time our lemon tree looks like crafters tree.. How about some ice lollies for the summer months. Hugs Maureen

My Father and Mother-in-law had a lemon tree - it was wonderful. When we would go visit - we would have fresh lemonade every evening - miss that! Hugs, Laura

What about lemon curd delish..

crafter2243 by crafter2243 13 Dec 2018

I love Lemonade in the summer, but right now I prefer hot chocolate. Hopefully the frozen juice will become lemonade.

Lemon Curd. Yes I already have some in the fridge and a thought just occurred to me. I could give some away as gifts.
