When a neighbor gives you lemons, what exactly do you do with them?

The citrus fairy left a present on my doorstep.

I got home after work yesterday to find a bunch of little, yellow lemons, curiously placed on the ground outside of the front door.

Carmen, the little old lady across the street, brings me tomatoes every once in a while — I was the recipient of at least one egg carton crammed with a dozen roma tomatoes this summer — so I wasn’t too wary of the mystery fruit. But, come to find out, it’s her next-door neighbor, Patrick, who actually supplied the citrus.

Mystery solved, but now I’ve got nine medium –size lemons to put to good use. Any ideas? Until I come up with something, I’ve at least got a pretty centerpiece for the coffee table.

  1. I use lemons in

    1. Salads. Mix fresh lemon juice with olive oil and use as salad dressing.

    2. Freeze lemon juice in ice cube containers to use on certain foods or for lemonade.

    3. I put a slice of lemon in my hot tea especially in the winter.
