This year our orange, grapefruit, and lemon trees gave off more fruit than we can even handle. They are reaching the point of being over-ripe so it’s been a mad dash of picking, squeezing, and pawning off on others before they go bad. It’s crazy because last year the trees were all duds- we didn’t get a single orange and only a few lemons and grapefruits- but that can happen on random years due to weather (or user error…).
I went through my Pinterest food board for some ideas and found this Lemon Tart with a Rosemary Crust from Happy Folks- so many delicious looking recipes on there, by the way. I’ve made it a couple of times and it’s a perfect blend of citrus and herby flavors, without being too sweet. I also made these Double Lemon Poppyseed Muffins from Cookie + Kate, which were super good and extra lemon-y.
I think some Classic Lemon Bars from Joy the Baker are in order, and I’d like to try this Grapefruit Yogurt Cake from Smitten Kitchen. Looks like I need to dedicate some more time to baking really soon, and some volunteers to help us eat all of these sweet treats!
Do you have any citrus suggestions I should try before the season is over?This entry was posted in kitchen and tagged Arizona, cooking. ← April’s Sewing Project Can’t Stop with the Dots →
