Hi everyone. I hope you and yours are all doing well. I thought spring had arrived but now we seem to be back into winter.
I have loads of lemons on our backyard lemon tree, and it has started flowering again, so I picked a few yesterday to make Lemon Butter and a sweet French Marmalade. It didn't seem to make much difference to what was left on the tree. I need to start giving them away. It was a wet dreary day yesterday, perfect for a morning in the kitchen.
I have blogged about the Lemon Butter making a couple of times before - if you click here you will find see more: Lemon butter
Here is the recipe:
- Juice of 4 lemons and finely grated rind of three
- 500gm (1 lb) white sugar
- 250gm (1/2 lb) butter
- 4 eggs, well beaten together. Make sure they are well beaten so you don't get strands of white in your mixture.
- Place all in a large bowl stranding in a pan of boiling water on the stove. Stir constantly until the consistency of honey, but do not allow to boil. This takes about half an hour.
Bottle and keep in fridge. Delicious on scones! or slathered on a sponge with cream.
While the French marmalade was bubbling away I also made a batch of muffins from a packet I bought when we were out in the wheatbelt recently. These are gluten free made from lupin flour. They were nice, but a bit heavier and grainer texture than the muffins we usually make with normal self-raising flour.
