Oranges and Lemons

Since my orange and lemon tree seems to be fruiting still and no amount of giving them away is making the production of fruit slow down. I am going to have to use them...lol I need to find recipes to use them. The lemons arent sour, they are the sweet variety, lemonade lemons! Yesterday, my mother and I juiced 1 medium sized box of lemons, and then juiced another box full of oranges. Still there is plenty of fruits on the trees. I made lemonade cordial with a lot of lemons and sugar water, it tastes so nice and refreshing too!

I thought about making some orange jelly. It sounds interesting, and I know Miles loves wobbly wobbly jelly! So, I have searched the net, and found a simple recipe for them. So I am going to give that a go. It would be nice to have some refreshing desserts for after dinner.
I also want to make some biscuits! Even thinking about orange creme filling for the biscuits, but not really sure yet, as it is freezing in the house and I dont think that the cream cheese will be at a nice room temp. I will keep hunting around for some more recipes!

I have decided for the 2009 season of my fruit trees, I will be making a lot more juice and freezing it away for the summer.
