Lemon Chutney Recipe or Similar wanted Please

Would like to help a Levin friend who has a tree full of lemons and wants to use them. She does not want to preserve them or freeze juice. A savoury recipe would be great and perhaps a curd one too.

Cooks, the chutney sounds delish! If you didn't have fresh peaches could you use tinned?

cookessentials, Apr 21, 1:30am
I dont know iriegirl. I have only ever done it with fresh and I would say that that would be the better option.

iriegirl, Apr 21, 5:06am
Thanks for that cooks, off on Saturday to find some nice peaches, anyone know anywhere to get some decent ones in Christchurch?

jessie981, Apr 21, 5:30am
Probably best to give Funky Pumpkin, Raeward & ask their prices. Bet they're not cheap in the Supermarkets (if any)

Have you tried preserved lemons? Great for so many recipes. Just, top tail, quarter, layer with salt, squish in a sealable jar, tightly, top with lemon juice. leave for 3 weeks min. Top up as used with oil. Should last chilled and sealed in fridge about 2-3 years. Flavour only increases. A base for many recipes.

dalkemade, Apr 21, 10:52pm
Thanks Chinju. i dont think she wants to preserve them but I will be using your recipe, sounds good and easy.

Has your friend thought about freezing and bagging them for when she feels like having lemon?I like to make my family Lemon Honey (have 2 recipes for this, both are good), then there's lemon meringue pie, lemon rice pudding, lemon chicken, lemon for the inevitable winter lurgy that comes around ... just a thought
