I do believe that the tree, only a few yrs old, is trying to tell me something... Each year, it's provided me with more lemons than the year before. I have to fight J off from picking the entire crop as soon as they are ripe, but it's my opinion that they will keep better if left on the tree, rather than picked and stored inside... Doesn't seem to make a difference whether or not they are refridgerated, either. So, when the tree recently began dropping the fruit, it was diligently gathered, and broght inside. Now, what to do with it all? Friend Denise loaned me her elec. citrus juicer, which I really must use and return soon, some of the juice will store in the fridge for a while, I plan on freezing cubes, to use later, but kinda figure that I'll still have juice to use. Recently, made my second ever Lemon Merangue, don't know that I'm ready for another, but who knows! Lemonade, sure, lemon bars or cake? I do believe that I should first juice the dozen, and go from there... I do believe the crazy kitchen will have to get all fired up to make juice! I just hope I don't burn up her juicer! After thought, perhaps not keep too much juice on hand, after all, there are still lemons on the tree! One more item for the "to do" list!
Should you have a fav lemon rec, give me a shout... I'm running out of ideas, faster than running out of LEMONS! For now, you'll find me in the kitchen, going lemons crazy!
Luv that citrus!
