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.
Now I need room in my freezer :-)
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
I'm glad the lemons grow again in your garden, after last's years accident.
here some links with ideas ...and hugs for you too.
( bye the way all these recipes make me hungry....)
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.
That is a wonderful tree. I love lemons. cheesecake comes to mind.
Hm...... Lemon cheesecake. Nice idea.
Your lemon tree is thriving ,you could make money .Lemons are $6.99 a kilo here & some are of poor quality.
Yikes. Unfortunately postage from one continent to the other would brake the bank otherwise I would send you some
i would like a few please send them Allllll the way to Canada lol ****hugs
Christmas card and now lemons? 😊😊
Holy cow....I vote for lemon meringue pie...yum!
You make me laugh. Thank you for the suggestion
Me too! Me too! My favorite pie!
How lucky you are! Google Meyer Lemon Pound Cake Recipe by Martha Stewart. YUMMY!
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.
Sounds like a winner
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
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
Wow! What a wonderful bumper crop!
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..
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.
