I had been congratulating myself on not catching the flu from the Grandchildren or my husband but today it hit. Runny nose, head aches, temperature, the lot. I delivered all my embroidery kits to the Guild this morning and then came home to go to bed. I hate colds. Mainly because I can't stitch. I tried and it will all have to come undone.
Then I remembered all the mandarins and lemons I had brought back from High-fields. All the mandarins have been eaten but there are still lots of lemons. Just right for a lemon and honey drink for this cold.
The lemons are beautiful, so full of juice. Far to good for a drink, so I made Lemon butter. One large jar from just 2 lemons.
And the colour was so rich.
The taste, delicious.
All this in less than 10 minutes. Only 4 minutes to cook, 6 minutes were spent getting the equipment our of the cupboard and sterilising the jar. Thank you again Mary O'Niel, a great recipe. Here is the link.
