One year on the Amalfi coast, I was served the most fantastic melted mozzarella that had been placed on a huge Amalfi lemon leaf and then placed on a grill.
The oil in the leaf gave the melted cheese an evocative flavour.
I love the perfume of lemon blossoms. The scent lifts the entire surrounding area.
Everyone should have a lemon tree in their garden or backyard. They use to.
It was a standard Australian suburban thing to find a lemon tree out the back.
The idea you can just go outside and pick a lemon fresh off the tree.
I love lemons themselves. The juice is sweet and emphasise and enhances all the other flavours it is blended with.
A squeeze of lemon over grilled lamb,or fresh salad greens, or even some lightly steamed brocollini; A slice of lemon with a G & T. Summer.
I love the wide range of yellow that its skin can be. I love the diversity of shape it can be.
I love lemons. They bring me joy. Celebrate JoyDay 25 November.
