I decided to create this blog, to replace my old one I had and was losing interest in and thinking and having things to post. Looking at my stats, I saw there was a lot of interest in my recipes I had posted. I do love to cook and have lots of recipes to talk about and post, and so decided to create this blog specifically for those of us that love to create in the kitchen! I hope you will follow this blog and be sure to tell your friends and family if you like what you see here. If you have a recipe you wish to submit, email me at jcdec63@msn.com and I will post it. Thanks for visiting! Granny J :D

A Lesson in Lemons

Look for lemons that are firm, feel heavy for their size and have a bright yellow color.  Avoid any with bruises or wrinkles.  Store at room temperature for about 3 days.  For longer storage, place in your refrigerator's crisper drawer for 2 to 3 weeks.  Juice or grated peel can be frozen for up to 1 year.  One medium lemon yields 3 tablespoons juice and 2 teaspoons grated peel.
