Did you see this in yesterday's The Sunday Age newspaper's Sunday life magazine?
Look what my friend Sally just sent me home with. I am so excited. It's too cold to grow our own lemon tree here but I adore them, skin and all.
I'm off to do some baking now...lemon squares, lemon cake, some juiced and frozen for later.
Does anyone have a recipe for preserved lemon? Or in fact any favourite lemon recipe?
Ya can't beat homemade lemon honey!
what a great pressie. we went over to a friends today and came back with beautiful lemons & rhubarb! I'm using them for lemon tart. preserved lemons is just basically lemons stuffed in a jar with heaps of salt. I'll search a recipe for you.
How wonderful. A woman can never have too many lemons. Stephanie Alexander's 'The Cook's Companion' has some good recipes, including one for lemon curd.
Tequila!! Lick, sip, suck, baby!
We have a good old lemon tree and we made up a pasta recipe that we call Pasta a la Jacob that's really simple. Cook some pasta, make a pesto of oregano (or basil), lots of garlic and loads of EV olive oil, toss the pesto into the hot pasta, add chunks of feta cheese and some just-toasted cashew nuts then squeeze lemon all over. Or maybe just a large gin and tonic with lemon, that's my other favourite use for them!! x
My favourite lemon recipe is the good old lemon slice. I have the recipe on my blog here:
but the ladies in the cafe at the Daylesford market had the most delicious lemon slice ever!
Slices of crusty fresh bread, a generous smear of butter. Topped with thin slices of lemon (rind and all)and either anchovy or parmigiano reggiano cheese.
Totally simple, unbelievably delicious.
