preserved lemons might be good, i have never made them, but they are used in Morrocan dishes

How lucky but I also feel your pain. I was gifted lemons last year and made lemon curd- basically lemon meringue pie insides ( https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/how-to-make-lemon-curd/ ) and then canned it in small jars. Good luck

@kali66 Every lemon in the sink got juiced and fridged/freezed. I do the Moroccan preserved lemon thing already, which is always awesome. I'm fishing for recipes for the rest of 'em. I give lots away, but I want to try to use some.....

We have the same problem, the weight of snow from our first snowfall in 5 years broke several branches and we have buckets of them. We cut them into segments and put them in the freezer for summer G&T's, and my wife makes limoncello. Her physiotherapist takes them to make lemon curd. She also does an excellent Cajun lemon shrimp dish, like this one http://mycookingspot.com/baked-lemon-shrimp/

My gracious, those trees were loaded! And they look marvelous.

Wow! That's a lot of lemons. Gifts for neighbors?

Wow! A lot of lemon cake? Or get some ginger and make hot lemon, honey and ginger. Enjoy

Wow what a great harvest

Amazing harvest and a wonderful image of bounty. My mouth is watering...

I'm quite envious! Loved Graeme's @graemestevens suggestion. But I'd probably juice them and freeze for later use. Also, make a big batch of lemonade!

It's nice that you managed to break them off the trees. You can store them somewhere. Let's hope that the temperature does not fall below + 4C. We used to bring lemons on ships in plain cardboard boxes. Temp. 4 to 8 C. Very little broke.

I keep my lemons in the fridge. a nice big one like yours costs 67 cents Canadian. a very foolish pricing as we don't have pennies anymore and so automatically 67 becomes 70 cents.
I really can't tell you how to keep them fresh. lots of backing and freezing. sharing them with friends and neighbours. sorry, I'm not much of help.
