My family just picked a shitload lemons from trees in our backyard. We've made a lot of lemon chicken and I'm planning on making lemon mousse this weekend, but what are some other ways to use them up?
>>
make a few batches of lemon cheese

They work great in lieu of vinegar for dressing salads. Make a salad of chopped romaine, scallions, feta and fresh dill. Dress with lemon juice and olive oil.

Also look up preserved lemons. East to make and useful in Moroccan cooking.

Lemon herb confit

Lemons are one of the easiest and most varied things you can use.

Also, I use lemon in my French toast. Add the juice of two lemons into the dredging liquid, along with eggs, milk + buttermilk (or cream), vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, tbsp of flour, and a tbsp of triple sec (you could also use brandy of some kind, I've used red wine in the past). Fry in butter till golden, then top with more butter, a little more lemon juice, lemon zest, your sweetener of choice (honey is GOAT), fresh fruit, and powdered sugar. Wa la.

Thirding limoncello. Limoncello is the best use of lemons.
>>
Lemons can be preserved in salt water, it's a thing used in a lot of Moroccan cooking. Look it up, it's pretty easy.
>>
>>7086532
Peel them and eat them like an orange.
>>
>>7086532

I go through a dozen, or so, lemons a week because I drink water throughout the day, instead of soda, and I add the juice of a quarter lemon to each glass for flavor.

Infinite lemonade.
Also, infinite vodka garnishes.

Yeh, basically it won't hold its shape unless it's cold. Juicy as fuck.

I guess maybe "gooey" would be a better word than moist. Still, fucking try it bitches, thank me once you've stopped cumming uncontrollably.

When I was a kid I always ate lemons fresh cut during soccer practice. the coaches would have a big tub of icewater and lemon quarters and I'd fish out a half dozen or so and eat them down to the rind.

you can mix the peels from the lemons with sugar and make jelly to spread on toast

its a good way to use something that would otherwise get thrown into the trash

Lemon Marmalade, extremely tasty on anything you'd used other preserves for.

Juice a fuckton of them and freeze it. Now you're set for lemon juice for fucking ever.

Cocktails
Dressings and marinades
Seafood
Tartar sauce
Lemonade
Soups (my grandmother used to make a lemon and garlic soup with dill that could wake the dead)
Vodka infusions
Canning

Apply it to leftovers that don't already have lemon.

I guess it's basically lemonade, but I don't like calling it that. I don't use sugar. Just one lemon a day squeezed into a large glass with water. It's very good for your health, especially your skin.

Otherwise, Moroccan style preserved lemon is great, you basically just squeeze and mash them up with some salt.
