Planting your own herb garden is easy and doesn't require a lot of space. The rewards of harvesting fresh herbs all season long, and also drying herbs for the winter, are well worth the small investment of time and effort.
I have an organic lemon tree in my backyard that yields more lemons than I know what to do with. This recipe adds a hint of ginger for a subtle, yet spicy kick. There is enough sugar in this recipe to keep the lemons tasting tart, but not too sweet.
Ginger makes one of my favorite candies. Spicy, chewy and amazing in desserts, I serve honey candied ginger as an after-dinner treat. Slices of honey candied ginger are also delicious at the bottom of your cup of tea or hot chocolate.
This jam is the classic Creamsicle combo of orange and vanilla. it's sweet and juicy and is great for people who don't like the bitterness of marmalade. Plus, don't throw those peels away. Dehydrate them instead!
