Apart from lemon and lime curd, what else can I make with that amount of citrus?

TIA

Fresh juice. Lemon meringue pie. Cheesecake.

I cut them into wedges and freeze then use in drinks

Could you freeze it as icecubes ?

Me too. Am thinking about making Nigellla's Lemon and Lime Cake.

Slice them up and freeze (laid out flat in plastic bags or on being trays until hard) ready made for chilled g&t or Coke/lemonade etc

X posts! Baking trays though, don't know what being trays are!

Homemade lemonade or lemon barley.

Lemonade and limeade - yum!

Good ideas re ice cubes. It'll be a while before we can benefit from them. smile

CeeBeeBee Sun 03-Jan-16 16:54:11

Like the limeade and lemonade idea. Is there a recipe for cordial perhaps?

howabout Sun 03-Jan-16 16:58:26

My really old Cranks cookbook has cordial recipes but just had a quick check and google came up with this

Sorbet?

Vixxfacee Sun 03-Jan-16 17:05:18

Lemon sorbet

Freeze the juice in ice cube trays for your gin. Add blueberries to the lime juice if you have them.

Lemon/lime curd, stores for ages in fridge and is delicious!

Experiment, which gin goes best with lemon, which with lime

6 limes = 6 mojitos :-)

Limoncello or the lime equivalent, then use the juice to make lemon and lime curd, then use that for a lemon meringue pie.
Or for cocktails

Jamie's baked salmon - marinade is limes, chillies and garlic wizzed up.

I too would make a lemon and lime meringue.
Or cut them, freeze, and then use when you have decided.
