Today, I would like to talk about the humble Lemon. You know….
that forgotten tree that is growing in your backyard, producing lots of lemons that you don’t know what to do with?
Lemons are great for the body, because they are packed full of healthy vitamins and antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Folate and full of fibre. Lemons can be great for your complexion and immune system….so try kickstarting your day with a glass of warm lemon water!
Did you know!?
It is also believed, that lemon juice can keep your white clothes brighter, by placing the undiluted juice into the washing machine prior to washing your clothes. They will come out smelling nice and fresh too!
My recipe for a delicious home baked Lemon Meringue Pie:
Kneed all the pastry ingredients together to form a dough. Make a disc shape and wrap in cling wrap and place in fridge for half an hour until firm. Then roll out and with rolling pin and carefully place in a non-stick pie dish. Trim overhanging pastry edges, then line pastry dish with baking paper and fill with rice (to keep pastry flat in the dish) and bake at 180 degrees for 20 mins, until crisp and golden. Take out of the oven.
Until next time……
