    Hi all,
    Have an abundance of lemons and limes (yay!!!) so I’m after your favourite recipes for them, probably in the categories of things that I can bake and freeze (for kids lunchboxes etc) or preserves, but a few fresh use now ideas wouldn’t go astray 🙂
    TIA

    It turned out so well Im making heaps more…..today we have new neighbours,he was washing his car I gathered some limes and asked if he wanted them ,he just laughed and said a guy walks out of the bush and hands me limes what a place,I said enjoy,no names, no small chat, just left …..its how I first was introduced to the place…… I looked at a guys coconut tree he asked If I wanted some, I said yeh,a few hours later there was a big bunch on my door step,I met a girl swimming and exchanged coconuts for fish her boyfriend was a fisherman and then the neighbour wanted some so I gave him a few and he made me an incredible Sri Lankan curry…. I knew I was somewhere speacial
