I know, I know -- lemon juice can't be substituted.
But until my lemon tree learns (or I learn to encourage it) to make lemons, I have to keep buying them. And I don't always have them.
So I was wondering what I can do to get that zing sometimes without lemons.
This thought came to me while drinking some herbal tea I made with lemon verbena.
I already have lemongrass, lemon verbena, and lemon balm. I also have lime basil. ...I ran out of lemon basil seeds, last year,s lemon basil failed before providing seeds, and I didn't get any this year.
So I thought, at the very least, I should make some lemony oil and vinegar by infusing these herbs?
