Lemons in Season.....

Gentle Friends, the Meyer Lemons are coming in now and we are on the receiving end of lots of them -  my bowl runneth over!!   So, over the weekend I baked up a pan of lemon Bars.......

.......  I made them back in November using THIS recipe, they are so good....  a buttery shortnbread crust and tart filling........  I think I'll be making a double pan of them this weekend for Rico to take to work.  I've been given so many lemons I am contemplating making some marmalade.  I love the stuff and it seems like a conjunction of "lemon love" and empty jars on the shelf, so why not.  I've never tried to make marmalade so I am kind of excited to try my hand at it.....  any suggestions????

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

I've made lemon curd before and it turned out really well. I've never made marmalade with lemons - I would give lemon curd a try, it was easy to do.

Yum--I love lemons--Suggestions--Lemon Curd, Lemonaid, Starbucks lemon loaf

Yum! That looks delicious! I love to make jams, preserves and marmalade. I have a cupboard full. I have learned to follow the recipe precisely. I found out that it will not set up properly and is runny, more like an ice cream topping. I ruined 15 pounds of strawberries trying to make a double batch. You know, a batch of scones would go nicely with the lemon marmalade.

Personally I am not a fan of marmalade so another idea is you could make lemon curd/lemon butter.

Lemon curd you can't go wrong

Margaret said...

Looks so yummy! I hope your marmalade comes out well too! I've never tried to make anything like that!

I have never made maralde either. But a lemon marmalade sounds just yummy. You might try a bit of ginger in some of it. Mmmmm

I love lemon anything! I first made those bars in junior high when I found the recipe in the Peanuts Cook Book which I purchased for 60 cents from the Scholastic Book Club at school : ) I was only interested in the Peanuts characters in the book, but found out there are surprisingly good recipes including one for lemon bars. There's a great one for divinity too! I may have to do some baking today : ) Unfortunately I don't know of a recipe for lemon marmalade.

Not a clue on how to make marmalade but may I suggest I'll be a willing tester!

I make this recipe every year now, and it is fantastic...flavourful without being bitter.
