It's Lemon Season Again!

About 45 years ago, someone planted two Meyer lemon trees in our back yard, one right next to the other. Their trunks have since intertwined so that the two trees look and act like one.

The tree is jam-packed with lemons right now. We're picking them and giving them away as fast as we can!

Here are some of the things that we make with lemons: lemon marmalade, lemon curd, preserved lemons, lemon walnut bread, lemonade, fish stew with lemons, tomato sauce with lemon zest, jars full of lemon zest, chicken with lemons and olives.

What do you like to make with lemons?

I've always longed to live somewhere where I can have fruit trees in my yard. I'm SO jealous of your good fortune!!
