Chatting over the fence my Sicilian neighbour, who is in her eighties, recommended to put a lemon leaf under polpette (those Italian slightly egg-shaped meatballs) when frying them in olive oil in the pan – not necessarily to eat the leaf but for it to impart flavour during cooking. I haven’t tried that yet however seeing these fresh young leaves I might need to give it a go.

I’ve always wanted a lemon tree. I am jealous! I have 2 olive trees I’m growing, but I doubt they will ever produce olives! Ciao, Cristina
The lemon tree is still small but growing and I have an olive tree also but too warm and humid for any olives! Zoe x
