There aren’t too many things you can put up in the middle of winter. One thing we don’t grow here in the northwest but I cannot do without are lemons. This time of year, though, I can purchase organic meyer lemons for $3.99 a pound.
Earlier in the week I preserved some so that we would have them for cooking when summertime rolls around and they will be the perfect addition to sorbets, chicken salad and pasta salads and dishes. I cannot make it through the month of July without at least one lemon curd pie and my kids love to make tiny bottles of lemonade to take on picnics.
