Tired of lemons getting molding so quickly? Did you know you can pickle them whole?

Nov 11, 2010

I didn't know that until recently. It's very easy, and I just wrote an article on my personal blog showing you how to do it too (proper credit to the author of the recipe is given as well).


Hi Amy Had a quick look on your blog. I LOVE the spoon labels. Totally unique. I,ve not seen those before and will have a go a flattening a spoon tomorrow. Its amazing what you can do with a little lateral thinking. At the moment i am making my labels out of the wooden slats from an old venetian blind. Regards Glenn
Thanks for checking out my blog! I just wrote a lengthy post on cooking cardoon, you may be interested in checking it out.
Thanks for passing along the how-to of brining lemons. Here's the link to Salma's "My Little Lemon Tree" > There's a lot of lemon-lore & we have urged her to post her Pakistani lemon pickling recipe & some of her menu uses of the lemon pickes. I added a lemon preserves recipe that looked promising.
No, I haven't read it yet. Thanks for sending it along. I need a little help with my lemon tree.
actually the link says the page is not found
- somehow? when I pasted in the url. I just checked & the actual link is the same as the "My Little Lemon Tree" page. Or you could search the title & it's at the top of the list. I am sure you would get good response from a Forum post about Lemon tree lore. Another gardener commented that his potted Lemon tree had thrived for "going on 20 years."
