Lemons ! What To Do With Them All !
What to do with them all !
We have been given lots of lemons, but what to do with them all. We are going to squeeze a lot of them into 1 cup measurements and freeze, that will be great for making our home made ginger beer. I will also make lots of ice cubes, they are always great for making salad dressings, hot lemon drinks in the cold weather or lemonade in the summer. I usually make lemon cordial, perhaps I will make a batch or two. I will also zest some its great to put into recipes I made my apple cakes the other day and put the juice of a lemon and the zest of two lemons it added a really nice tang. I can also make my lemon bath salts which also uses the zest of the lemons. Last year I made a big batch of lemon peel chutney , I got all excited because I had juiced a heap and had the skins and thought what can I use them all for. I was really disappointed, I hated it , Kev said it was ok .Suffice to say I won't be making that again, you live and learn. I do have a recipe for lemon and poppy seed muffins, perhaps a batch of them. I'm not really into lemon butter. Any other ideas will be really appreciated, I would hate to see them go to waste.
