The season when domestic lemons that are colored yellow are sold in supermarkets. Many domestic products do not use antifungal agents (antifungal agents), so even the skin can be eaten with peace of mind. It's almost impossible to get in the summer, so I want to enjoy it now.
So this time, I will introduce two lemon recipes that I often make ("making" is extremely easy). Lemons should be pesticide-free if possible, but if you can't get them, you don't have to wash them well or use the skin!
◆ British mother's taste "lemon curd"
The yellow butter cream "lemon curd" that you can see at jam counters. It is a traditional British dish used for lemon pie, etc., and it is said that each family has its own taste in England. Yes, lemon curd is easy to make at home.
The ingredients (about 140 ml) are 1 lemon, 25 g butter, 30 g sugar, and 1 egg. I like sourness, so the amount is modest in sweetness. Please adjust to your liking.
The bottle to be used should be sterilized by boiling and dried well. It's a good idea to save the hot water and use it in a water bath.
Grate the lemon zest, cut in half and squeeze the juice. Grate only the yellow part of the skin, and try not to put in the white thin skin as much as possible. Also, remove the seeds from the juice.
Loosen the egg in a bowl, add sugar and lemon juice and mix well.
Put hot water in a frying pan, put the bowl in a water bath, add diced butter and continue mixing slowly.
After a while, it will thicken, so add the lemon zest and mix it further. Completed when it becomes heavy and heavy. After removing the heat, put it in a bottle and store it in the refrigerator. Please eat in about a week.
Freshly made, the scent of lemon is luxurious and delicious enough to eat a bottle as it is! Use it for anything that looks good, from toast and cracker toppings to making sweets.
◆ Various arrangements ♪ "Honey Lemon"
Next is "Honey Lemon". Speaking of sports, this is it. I don't have any memories of sweet and sour youth, but I used to prepare a lot at my part-time job.
The point is that the lemon is pickled in honey, so just soak the ingredients together. Slice the lemon as thinly as possible, take the seeds, put them in a sterilized bottle, and pour an appropriate amount of honey. I wonder if it will be easier to soak if you divide it into several times and put it alternately. You can eat it from the next day to a week while shaking or turning it over once a day.
Honey lemon can be enjoyed in abundant arrangements just like lemon curd. Of course you can eat it as it is.
