Best Lemon Bars
This recipe might have you puckered up and ready for a kiss after you eat them. Yes that is one great thing about lemons; they give you more pucker for your puss. Lemon desserts recipes are always a great way to include the citrus fruit we don’t always like because of the tanginess of them. They are a great addition to tea and are great cleaning aids but not too many people like them on their own. This recipe from Jocelyn will give all lemon varieties a home. Squares and bar recipes are always a great place to find lemon, as are pies. Lemon desserts recipes are great when paired with a strong coffee on that Sunday morning when your taste buds need waking up.
The next time you want to make squares and bars recipes then make sure you have lemons on hand because they will help to bump up the volume on that tangy treat. With the many lemon varieties to choose from you will not be looking far for that citrus fruit to accentuate your dessert recipe.Lemons have a vast and impressive history even though the exact time they were first grown is not known. There are many theories on the first place to grow them but it is now accepted that the first cultivation of them was in North East India, Burma or even China. The fact that no one is sure of the exact origin probably lies in the fact that they were not readily used in many recipes until they found their way to Italy. They entered Europe through Italy and have been around there since the Ancient Roman times. They eventually made their way to Persia and the rest of the Middle East by about 700AD.
It took Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America for them to get there and they are now a large part of our diets here in North and South America. In ancient mariner times many sailors suffered from scurvy, that basically just means a lack of Vitamin C. Lemon juice was given to them and they got better but at that time they did not know lemons were loaded with vitamin C. The word lemon has been translated into many different languages but the original word is thought to be from the Italian word limone. With the abundant amount of vitamin C in them it is no wonder how much a part of our culinary and regular life they have become.
There might not be a consensus of where they were first cultivated but the many recipes that they are included in wouldn’t be the same without that tarty little yellow fruit. Just remember they can be squeezed into juice, added to a drink, zested for the flavor and used in many household-cleaning solutions as well. There use is only limited to your imagination and the many recipes out there. Thanks to Jocelyn of Inside Bru Crew Life Blog for this yummy and tarty Best Lemon Bars Recipe and bon apetit.**
