    Not sure. I have no association with service clubs

    Hmm....

    "Rotary Club of Dunedin has always been thrilled to receive it and forwards fruit to needy people.

    "They use the lemons for drinks, especially at this time, of the year while the grapefruit is made into jam. Last year we sent four bins - one year we sent eight and they sent some onto Wānaka and to Queenstown."

    Not quite what I was thinking. Marmalade not jam. Yuk. What if they just want the fruit? And what about other areas? I used to send lemons to my friend in Canterbury................

    I prefer marmalade to jam, and lemon curd most of all.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Lemon curd...made some once for a friend. I was horrified.

    2 eggs, plus 2 egg yolks
    3/4 cup (165g) Caster Sugar
    1/3 cup (80g) chilled Butter
    Zest and juice of 2 lemons


    Could be called lemon flavoured lolly goop.

    Jam is generally 50/50 although I make it 70/30 (30% sugar that is...)

    the trouble with lemons is high acid content. you need a lot of sugar to balance that out.
    its like honey (~88% sugar) but it doesn't taste all that sweet due to high acid content (not quite as high as lemon).
    Tweak it till it breaks

    My mum likes lemons. She squeezes the juice onto almost everything I cook. And her salad for example...no mayonnaise or dressings...just lemon juice.
    She also has water, and squeezes lemon into that too.
    No sugar at all.

    I make lemon muffins now and then...with both the juice and the zest...I don't add extra sugar though and they're fine. My brothers favourite.
