Ways I like lemon best (especially in the summer):

  • thinly sliced and cooked on top of fish
  • juice or wedges in an ice cold glass of water or sun tea

  • my family’s Yummy Lemon Dessert recipe (yes, this just uses instant lemon pudding and not fresh lemon, but it’s so darn good)… The most similar recipe I could find online for this is here. We’ve never put add nuts to it though, but that sounds like a nice twist.
