Winter Aromatherapy: Lemons

Sure, if you live in California, Texas or Florida winter gloom is no big deal for you. You can run outside and pick fresh lemons from your own lemon tree this time of year. The rest of us have to grow citrus indoors to harvest our own.

The smell of fresh lemons actually boosts our mood. Truly. It’s a scientific fact I read somewhere. Laura is enjoying some Lemony Pie made with Meyer lemons. The recipe is in my new book, The Kitchen Garden Companion, due out in the fall of 2010. Stay tuned.

  1. Lucky Laura. I loves me some Meyer Lemons too, Jennifer, though I have to battle spider mites all winter long to keep them from defoliating my tree. Got any secrets on that front?
    Love the pie crust shot! Very poetic.

  2. David, It was very tasty. Sweet and tart. I am glad you like the photo. Some days are just like that… cooking and photographing, eh? I don’t know about the spider mites….
