When life hands you lemons…..make ‘Lemon Pickles’ – who’s up for the challenge?

 

It’s that time of year in Australia when ‘Lemons and Oranges’ are plentiful. There seem to be piles of them everywhere ……and if you know anyone that has their own tree they will be giving them away. After visiting my in-laws in Alstonville on Saturday we returned with a bag full of lemons …..and I am sure that there are more on their way. There are only so many I can cut up and freeze  for gin and tonics so I have decided to make some ‘Lemon Pickles’.

I can’t say that the process for making pickles is quick but I can say that it is rewarding and easy! So if you are up for the challenge of making some spicy lemon pickles, watch this space –  I will be updating my blog with the process and progress of my lemon pickling over the next couple of weeks!

  1. Those look like Meyer Lemons. I have a few myself that I’d like to experiment with. Looking forward to your post.

  2. Yes me too. I was given a huge bag at the weekend and made some lemon curd but would love to do something different.
