So roughly 3 yrs ago and an excessive amount of fresh lemons, I decided to make some homemade Limoncello. Lots of lemon peel soaked in vodka, roughly 6 weeks and then make sugar syrup and sweeten to taste. Made up a few gift bottles for Xmas that year and they went down a treat. Last weekend while I was having a clean-up in the pantry, I came across 1bottle I'd missed. The vodka/lemon peel one. Not so interested in turning it to a liquer, I decided to make some tinctures with it. Decided on skullcap and gotu kola as apparently they can be bitter to consume, so with the extra lemony taste, should be ok! I also did jars and jars of preserved lemons, still got a couple on hand.
The last couple of seasons I've had a crack at growing okra. Not popular down here but gee we like it. 4/5 plants is all we needed to keep us in okra last summer. People ask how's it taste, what's good about it. I was including it in curries, casseroles, stir frys etc but I wanted it to shine on its own and found this recipe. I'm guessing some of you out in TGN land will be big okra fans, so please hit me with your best recipes please. I just planted the first round of seeds. The only variety in Australia, seems to be Clemsons Spineless.
