Send unusual recipes for lemons, I'm inundated with fresh lemons and have made everything from curd to nuts; just kidding! Help!
Seriously, I've made lemon curd, lemon possets, lemon soufflé, ice cream, juice, you name it. I'm in need of something that uses plenty of juice and zest. P.S. There's more fruit on two trees. Giving them away is not an option, no one knows what to do with them. Most folks will take one. Help!

There are two versions posted, both by dymnwyno. Delicious and makes use of WHOLE lemons!
Thanks again, I know in June and July I will be missing my beauties. Have you ever seen a Meyer lemon this perfect, it was my first one this year.
Most of the 45 uses are fairly well known to me. Nevertheless, my memory has been refreshed, and I thank U for that. I even throw some bits and pieces in smoothies. Thank U so much; Happy blogging!
There are recipes for Shaker Lemon Pie, which uses the whole lemons, thinly sliced, and a similar one for lemon bars.
You could freeze the zest (peel it off in strips) and juice separately, until needed. My mom would freeze the juiced lemon halves, and then zest when frozen, but I keep a bag of citrus zest strips in my freezer, either mincing when needed or mixing with sugar in the food processor for a recipe. I recently saw lemon-flavored sea salt, so I guess you could do the same with salt.
You can also mail some to me :-)
I'm envious of your bounty!
Lemonade using whole fruit (buzz it up in processor or blender with some sugar & herbs. Surprisingly delicious, includes volatile oils from the rind.)
Preserve chopped lemon zest - either by slow drying or freezing.
