I am blessed. I have an older daughter who is now perfectly capable of teaching her younger sibling so when we were given an excess of lemons & limes Liddy promptly moved into the kitchen to make lemon butter with Ditz. Liddy & I then promptly ate the lot. There wasn't a skeric left this morning. We did however still have plenty of limes & a lone lemon so lemon/lime butter it was. It was lovely to find I really didn't have to teach Ditz anything. She busily went to work cutting & squeezing & measuring all on her own & did plenty of the hard work of whisking as well. She is becoming a very competant cook ~ but then all mine love their food & have learnt to cook well in self defence.
This is the end result....& it is very yummy. If it lasts long enough I will make some small lemon meringue tartlets for desert one evening. Keeping it that long is highly dubious. Everyone in this house eats it by the spoonful. Why waste such a glorious taste on toast?
The good news is that we have an open invitation to help ourselves to the bounty for its duration so there are plenty more lemons & limes where these came from. More lemons & limes means we can make more butter. Ditz is going to be very good at this before we are done!
