Lemons, lemons, lemons. I have been having nightmares about them. We have a huge excess of them this year in fact all the citrus trees have been bearing an amazing amount of fruit. The mandarins were the first to ripen and were so sweet and delicious. The birds also thought so, devouring almost half of them! The navel oranges were also the juiciest and sweetest we have ever grown and we have been having freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast every morning.

I have also made a microwaved lemon curd that is not only delicious on toast but when we had guests come to our place on the weekend I made lemon meringue tarts using the lemon curd. Everyone loved them and the recipe has become a "keeper".
