the handy lemon

This is the first year,l have noticed on my lemon tree,[l planted 2 years ago],14 fruits swelling nicely.So,l done a bit of searching on the many uses one can do with a lemon.
An article l found in the reader’s digest.
1/When your having a bbq,chuck a few peelings on the charcoal,this will maranade the food while cooking,and also the area will be filled with an aroma of sweetness.You can also throw peelings on a log fire,ideal for Christmas,with a pleasant smell in the air,that eliminates bad odurs in the room
2/a lemon is a handy stain remover on marble.Cut a lemon in half,and dipped the exposed flesh in salt,and rub it vigorously on the stain.[but only do this as a last resort]since lemon is acidy,it can damage marble,rinse away the lemon straight away.
3/Make a room humidifier,by freshening and moisturizing the air,with a pan on the stove,filled with water,lemon peeling,cloves,orange peeling,any other of choice,bring to the boil,and just let it simmer,filling the room with a fragrance of citris.

4/Make a room scent/humidifier
Freshen and moisturize the air in your home on dry winter days. Make your own room scent that also doubles as a humidifier. If you have a wood-burning stove, place an enameled cast-iron pot or bowl on top, fill with water, and add lemon (and/or orange) peels, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and apple skins. No wood-burning stove? Use your stovetop instead and just simmer the water periodically.



5/Clean tarnished brass
Say good-bye to tarnish on brass, copper, or stainless steel. Make a paste of lemon juice and salt (or substitute baking soda or cream of tartar for the salt) and coat the affected area. Let it stay on for 5 minutes. Then wash in warm water, rinse, and polish dry. Use the same mixture to clean metal kitchen sinks too. Apply the paste, scrub gently, and rinse.


6/Polish chrome
Get rid of mineral deposits and polish chrome faucets and other tarnished chrome. Simply rub lemon rind over the chrome and watch it shine! Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.

Has anyone else has any handy tips on the use of a lemon.
What l want to know is,how to make the real lemonade,out of real lemons.

Wink Re: the handy lemon

Girls and other handbag carriers, always carry a fresh lemon in your handbags!

If you feel under threat at anytime, cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the offending persons eyes.

Far more eco-friendly than using CS Gas.

Also after you've squeezed the juice out you can collect the seeds These can be planted for future generations and you will get praise from fellow "greenies" for reducing your carbon-footprint.

Is it me ?

Re: the handy lemon

Hands up any girlys that used to rub it in their hair on holiday for natural highlights?

Can also be used to whiten fingernails and a squeeze in hot water every morning will give your system a clean through and set you up for the day :-)

Re: the handy lemon

Yes Ms Who, I put my hands up! I used to do that all the time, and it was my hairdresser who told me to do it!
I also drink hot water with a squeeze of lemon every morning, and have done so for years.....
Also similar to freshening rooms, I put a squeeze of lemon in water in the microwave to get rid of smells and to freshen it up.

Re: the handy lemon

Bob,

There are endless ways of making lemonade. You can just mix a combination of lemon juice, sugar, water and ice in a jug but with this method the sugar will sink to the bottom and you will have to keep it well stirred.

I find the best method is to make a sugar syrup first.

Put one water glass of sugar in a pan, along with one water glass of water. Heat gently stirring all the time until the sugar has dissolved and then boil it for a couple of minutes. (If you don't make sure the sugar has all dissolved before it boils you will get crystals in it.)

Pour the syrup (cooled) into a large glass jug and add to this one water glass of strained, freshly squeezed lemon juice. (Roll the lemons on the work surface first to break up the pulp and you will get more juice. Make sure they are at room temperature too, straight off the tree and not out of the fridge.) Add ice and top up with plain water or I like to mix in soda water to make fizzy lemonade. Finish off with some slices of lemon and a sprig of fresh mint from the garden, if you have some. Delicious!

If you find this too sweet, add a little more lemon juice.
