Z IS FOR?
"Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of St. Clement's" ~ traditional English nursery rhyme.
I have plenty of oranges and lemons at the moment and have been thinking of how to use them up ~ both their inners and their flavoursome outer zesty skins. I have zealously zipped through a few recipe books looking for ideas ~ maybe in marmalade, a lemon drizzle cake or perhaps in zabaglione. I have been wondering whether any of the fruit in my fruit bowl comes from the orange groves of Zaragoza ~ surely the odds must be more than one in a zillion.
An interesting explanation of the nursery rhyme can be found here.
