Ripe Lemons

I have a lemon tree that I've been babying for a couple of years. 

It bloomed.

It produced a lot of tiny green lemons.

All of them fell off except the two at the very tippy top.

As they got bigger, the top tipped.

They stayed green forever.  For.  Ever.

They finally turned yellow.

Now I'm trying to decide what to do with them.

Suggestions?

  2. I'd never heard of them, so I looked them up. Here's a link: http://theenglishkitchen.blogspot.com/2010/02/sussex-pond-pudding.html

    Hello Lemon Fabulousness! We will have to try this. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Lemon curd? I don't know how many lemons it would take, but it is something you can put up and use later in your baking.

  4. I made Canadian lemon bread. :) I think I also made lemon curd. But now I'm curious about Sussex pond pudding...

    That blossom photo makes me nostalgic; I took one of our Meyer lemon tree that looked just like that (used it as my blog header for a while). I miss our tree...but not the mess of leaves it drops on the ground. :}

  5. I'm all for simple lemon slices to squeeze on fish or alternatively, fresh lemon and oil salad dressing.

    I have a lime tree that bore fruit last year for the first time (I think it caught on that I was thinking about getting rid of it!). This year it bore even more fruit and I learned that if I water the tree, it produces bigger fruit! Go figure!

    Enjoy your lemons!

  6. My first thought was wedges, served with salt and some Jose Cuervo. But That's my thing, not yours! :-) I'm wondering if I would kill a Meyer lemon tree... I doubt seriously I have enough light in my house to make it happy. I know yours is in a lovely sunny studio window, right?
