My Meyer lemon bush is very prolific and today I picked a good dozen or so of the ripened fruit to give the remaining green ones more chance to develop.
So many of the flowers have set that I was expecting to have a drop of immature fruit at some point. It hasn't happened and now some of the leaves are yellowing and showing signs of stress. Should I thin out some of the fruit? I've fed the bush but it still looks rather stricken.
Any advice from Blogland? I would be happy to have it!
Six ripe lemons makes three pots of lemon curd.
6oz butter, melted
6 lemons, zest and juice
12 oz sugar
Melt butter in a bowl set over a container of simmering water. Add the lemon zest and juice, then the sugar and finally the well-beaten eggs. Continue to stir constantly until the mixture thickens then remove from the heat and pour into jars.
