If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Exciting Lemons

Yep, lemons.
I was watching a cooking show when someone mentioned cooking with lemons that had been "aged" for 6 to 9 months. And how much zingy-er recipes became when you added some. Also, with aged lemons, you can use all parts. You don't want to throw out any piece of it.
WOW!! I immediately looked up some recipes. 
So in this new year, I want to share my lemon journey with everyone.
Mr. Cowboy was instructed to go to the grocer's to buy a bag. He rolled his eyes but bought some, then wanted to supervise the process. He's so cute......but no, I don't need him hanging over my shoulder at this point.

Step 1
 
Of course this is a whole lemon.

Cut off both ends.
 
 
Slice into each lemon just enough to allow it each to open but not fall apart.

Place each in a bowl or container.
 
Mix 1/2 cup Kosher salt to 1/4 cup sugar.
 
Sprinkle over and into each lemon, cover and refrigerate overnight. This will allow the lemons to marinate in their own juices making a syrup.
Stay tuned for the next step.

This is going to be pretty danged interesting. I'm not even going off to Google because I don't want to spoil watching your progress with this. This is so cool! and a great way to start the new year. That old saying about when life gives you lemons is going to take on a whole new "take".

Have a great day.
xx, Carol

I am really curious because I have never heard of adding sugar to the salt.

Do I tell my husband this is a quilting experiment?!

Wow, this is interesting! I expected a post about Meyer lemons, because that's what lemon posts usually are. This is unique and I'm fascinated to hear the next step!

;-}

Don't count the days, make the days count!
