when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

by @according2kelly on February 4, 2008

but when you’ve had your fill of lemonade & lemon bars, what do you make next? my mom’s lemon tree is producing like crazy this winter! (which is great for us because ours froze last winter.) we actually have more lemons than we know what to do with! any suggestions? anyone want some freshly picked lemons?

Kelly, I like to make fresh lemonade and then put in a few sprigs of fresh rosemary to give it a little zest. It looks pretty too!

Oh, those look so good. I would love having fresh lemons. I like the freezing and lemon curd ideas that have already been mentioned.

I want. Yes, make lemon curd and doll it up in little gift jars. That would be my all-time favorite Christmas gift!

I SO want some of those lemons!!! I was going to make some lemon ice cream tonight with a couple of lemons I have on hand. You start by making a yummy lemon curd and adding cream to it. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Tonight I made a pie crust for banana cream pie, but your post is really making me crave lemon meringue. Email me if you want the recipe. Mmmm, my salivary glands are going crazy.

Oh how fun! I love lemonade and lemon bars. I would do a search on cooking.com with "lemon" and see what you come up with.

Yummy lemons! I may need to be making some lemon bars after reading your post! How fun to have your own lemon tree no less!

Here's an idea for your over-abundance of lemons. Did you hear about "Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation." Alex died at an early age of childhood cancer. People across the US set-up lemonade stands to raise money in her name for cancer research. Here's the website for more info: http://www.alexslemonade.org/
