Every year in this season, life gives us lemons
But how can we preserve the bounty so we can freshly squeeze them all year long? By Pesach the season will fade!
Here’s the simplest, most effective way: Just pick ’em and stick them in the freezer whole. When they defrost, they are a bit mushy and super easy to squeeze.
If you’re not lucky enough to have your own lemon tree, I guarantee you that you have more than one neighbor whose tree is overloaded right now. They will gladly let you pick a bunch.
Give them something in return and they’ll probably let you pick 50.
As one lemon-laden neighbor told me, “supply is outstripping demand.”
This is how it works on a city farm.
We push the boundaries of home-grown food in the city.
My name is Naomi and this is my tiny little farm in the heart of the rapidly growing city of Beit Shemesh, Israel. I enjoy growing, making and processing as much of my family's food and household essentials as possible, while nurturing a biodiverse ecosystem filled with beauty and life.
