…what do you make? We have a lemon tree in the garden that is bursting with lemons. We get so many of them every year that I usually run out of ideas on what to do with them.
This year I decided to do some research and here is my Top 10!
- Make lemonade.
- Lemon drizzle cake. Actually this is a family favourite. I use the recipe in Sam Stern’s “Cooking Up a Storm : The Teen Survival Cookbook”. It’s very moist and doesn’t last very long in our house.
- Lemon cookies
- Add a slice to your favourite tipple (gin and tonic or vodka and lime) or even just pop a slice in some hot water for a refreshing energising drink.
- Lemon Meringue Pie
- Lemon chicken.
- Lemon rice.
- Put half a lemon in a cup of water and put in the microwave on the full setting for a minute to get rid of any nasty odours. It leaves it smelling lovely and fresh.
- Lemon Curd
