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.

My other posts with lemons!!

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 of lemons, I made some Preserved Lemons
Preserved lemons are good with middle eastern dishes or steam fish using some preserved lemon slices.
4) Some lemons were sacrificed to make the luscious Homemade Lemon Curd that I used to make this Lemon Curd Slice
5) Last but not least, I used lemon to clean kettles.
Lemon makes an excellent cleaning 'agent'.
And its chemical free!!!

Tips when harvesting lemons

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.
