Re: Weekend accomplishments

Jim, you might try lemon or lime marmalade. Rose's makes a lime marmalade that is to die for. Lemon jelly, however, sounds delicious.

I just found a recipe for "Old Time Lemon Jelly," which I may try after Christmas when Ms Fatma flies north to visit her kids. Might be a nice Sunday breakfast, buttermilk biscuits with lemon jelly. Or lime jelly. [Separately, of course. Lemon-lime jelly sounds like one of those horrid drinks concocted by our fast-food entrepreneurs. Both the Key lime and the Meyer lemon have paper-thin rinds, so a little rind could be added to the mix of each.

Oh, yeah. To whomever warned about Campbell's tomato soup containing sugar [Campbell's tomato bisque, likewise], Albertson's house brand CLAM CHOWDER contains a dose of sugar. Give me a break. I guess because they're not brave enough to put nicotine in their soups, they are using the next best addictive, sugar.

Wish I could! I do the same with my basil: harvest the leaves and food process it with olive oil as if I was going to make a pesto sauce, then place it in ice cube trays and freeze. When frozen, I pop out the cubes into freezer bags and place back in the freezer. Then, when I need basil in a recipe, I just grab a cube or two and add them to the other ingredients.

Not much to report. Squeezed and froze about 3 gallons of tangelo juice--there are still many more to pick and process--and several ice cube trays of lemon and lime juice. Kind of tedious freezing juice in ice cube trays even if one has six or seven trays to work with. Two Meyer lemons, for example, will produce enough juice to fill a tray. So when you have a bumper crop, as we seem to have this year, one doesn't make much of a dent in it with ice cube trays--and for lemon and lime juice, almost any other unit of measure it too large to have much utility.
