I’m having a mid-winter, midnight feast because I found a way to capture summer in a bottle.
I got a bumper crop this year which yielded over 100 pieces of fruit from my 2 trees. So what’s one to do? Lemon butter. So I spent a quick hour preparing some of this years lemon crop to make some lemon butter. I just wanted to do a test batch before I try processing all the fruit.
|The recipe went something like this:
The only real modification I made was to add the grated peel to the lemon mixture. This is an intentional addition to cut the sweetness and add some slight texture and yielded about 2/3 of a jar. I’ll adjust the recipe to 4 lemons to fill a jar. Not a bad result for an hours work.

♬ I’ll always be a dreamin’ man / I don’t have to understand / I know it’s alright ♬
♬ I’m not goin’ back to Woodstock for a while / Though I long to see that lonesome hippie girl smile / I’m a million miles away from that helicopter day / No / I don’t believe I’ll be goin’ back that way ♬
♬ The restless consumer lies / Asleep in her hotel / With such an appetite / For anything that sells ♬
♬ Trippin’ down that old Hippie Highway / Got to thinkin’ ’bout you again / Wonderin’ how it really was for you / And how it happened in the end / But I guess I’ll never know the truth / If you were really all alone ♬
