Post with lemons in 2018

2018 was my "Lemon" year :D

Lets recall my 2018 lemon posts...

1) My personal challenge was to bake Lemon and Elderflower Cake.

2) Crispy and Sticky Lemon Chicken Wings

3) When I have abundance... I made some Preserved Lemons

4) Some lemons were sacrificed to make the luscious Homemade Lemon Curd that I used to make Lemon Curd Slice

5) Lemon is not only good for eating, lemon makes an excellent cleaning 'agent'.
Chemical free!!!
I used lemons to clean badly water stained kettles...

Lemons is not only for baking...

Lemon is one of my favourite fruits. Not that I can eat lemon, on its own, just like that.
  • A slice of lemon in my drinking glass, cleanse my palate and keep me fresh all the time, especially on hot summer days.
  • A squeeze of lemon in simple salad brings out the flavour in sometime bland greens.
  • A zest and a drizzle of lemon in bakes, makes the whole house smells like heaven on earth.
  • Rub your hands with lemon to get rid of odour, eg fishy smells.
  • Lemons are used in homemade, "au-naturel" beauty product.

With my bounty lemon harvest for 2018, I made this lips-smacking delicious Lemon Curd Slice.

Making Lemon Curd Slice

Ben O' Donoghue's Lemon Curd Slice, has shortbread like base, top with Lemon Curd, and top with crumble mixture.

Just imagine biting into these luscious Lemon Curd Slice, what every bite does to your palate!!

You are biting into sweet buttery shortbread base, then pop in some tart, sweet and 'sour-ish' taste of lemon curd, and then comes... the crunchy bits of almond meal and flour crumble.

Isn't it just like the New Year fireworks celebrations, taste and popping sensation in your mouth :P

Tips :

Sharing one tip on how to keep lemon 'shelf life' longer in the fridge...

When you harvest the lemons, makes sure that you cut about 1 cm of stalk as well. Do not wash, and straight away place them in the vegetable compartment in your fridge.

  1. I agree with you, lemons are the best, in fact, I simply never run out of lemons in the fridge, I would get nervous. Use them A LOT.

    your beautiful lemon slices are so tempting!

  2. I made these last week and they were absolutely delicious. So much so, I'm making them again. Is that naughty? I love anything with lemons. Thanks for the lovely recipe.

  4. Hi I was wondering if you added a egg yolk to the crumble mixture it doesn't have it in the recipe for the crumble it looks very nice thanks Andrea
