The extra rain we endured coupled with a warmer than usual February has given us a bounty of citrus in the L.A. area this year. The huge bounty is showing up in everyones back yards as well as farmers markets. I have to admit I have one little lemon tree that makes more lemons than I can handle. Or so I think.
Sunday is limoncello making day at my house, with Ruth666. After the rinds have been zested off the remaining lemons will be used to make plus perfect lemonade. After that a few batches of righteous lemon bars…a recipe I’ll never give up. Some will be used for roasting off stuffed up a chicken’s butt, others I need help with, what to do with them. Ideas?
Of course, if you don’t have your own tree its entirely likely that you know someone with a tree who would gladly share their bounty. Heaven knows my neighbors will be getting plenty of lemons, oranges and grapefruits off of me.
