Honey Lemon Slices

It is citrus season.
My Meyer lemon tree produced a whopping 5 lemons this year.  Sad, but better than last year's 2. Container citrus culture is not producing the harvest I'd hoped for.
Nevertheless, we have a good assortment of organic citrus at the local stores these days, and lemons, oranges, and grapefruit are piled high in the fruit bowl ready for a quick snack or adding to tea or a recipe.

Honey and lemon is a tried and true remedy that most everyone is familiar with.
A cup of hot tea laden with honey and lemon juice is a quick fix for a scratchy throat.

Today I visited a friend and she showed me her latest 'recipe'- Lemon Slices in Honey.
Simply thinly sliced lemons suspended in a jar of honey.  She had this in the refrigerator to infuse.

This sounds like a great way to preserve my lemon harvest, and will be handy for when Lemon & Honey tea is ordered.

Have you ever preserved lemon slices in honey?  
How else do you use lemon in your household?

Herbal Blessings,

Catherine
