Garden: Under the Lemon Tree

April 19, 2008 § 6 Comments

~ explore Garden

~ Lemon trees have inspired numerous poems and songs. This is quite surprising, considering how ordinary and simple-looking lemon trees are. I guess their simplicity and unfanciness project the pureness of nature and of love. They also make great juice. 🙂

    I can think of several lemon-themed songs. There’s:

    –Don’t Sit Under the Lemon Tree With Anyone Else But Me
    –Put the Lemon In the Coconut and Mix ’em Both Together
    –Lemon Tree (Peter, Paul & Mary)

    🙂

    Seriously try http://www.mixedup.com/foodsongs.htm for a selection of songs about food.

    That lemon tree is very pretty. I bet the flowers are sweet.

    Hi,

    Lemon juice is nice.. but remember to add a bit of “salt” apart from sugar.

    From this part of the world.. we steam fish with lemon too. But 1 thing to remember, do remove the skin, or else ,the after taste is bitter.

    When make apple juice, add a bit of lemon juice into it, it slows down the “browning” – oxidation effect.

  • mmmm homemade lemonade!
    I have heard there are lemons that can be sweet when picked right off the tree and eaten, not sure if thats myth though?
