A Beautiful Brunch with LemonGold® Seedless Lemons
The humble lemon is one of the food world’s most praised heroes and most cooks will nominate lemons for their top 5 ingredient list. Not only does its sweet, tangy flavour work well in both sweet and savoury dishes, a single squeeze brightens any dish. It’s even often heralded as ‘the new salt’.
LemonGold® Seedless Lemons Raise the Stakes
While this is true for all lemons, the LemonGold® lemon brand has raised the stakes with its seedlessness. No longer do chefs, home-cooks and lovers of all things lemony need to reach for the sieve or have to fish out pesky pips from their salad dressing or healthy home-pressed juice. This sister brand of the popular ClemenGold® mandarin brand, similarly adheres to the strictest quality standards from the farm to the shelf.
LemonGold® seedless lemons are hand selected for premium quality and packaged with care for a consistently first-class experience.
But Let’s Brunch
French toast, eggy bread, pain perdu…whatever you call it, there’s no doubt this dish is a firm fave. Whether you make it for a weekend brekkie with the family or a leisurely brunch with your pals, this divine recipe transforms regular French toast from passé to c’est magnifique! Thick-cut slices of farm bread are dunked in a decadent mix of egg yolks, cream and milk and fried in butter until just crisp and golden, while retaining a fluffy centre.
To top it we’ve made a lemony labneh that we infused with the zest and juice from LemonGold® seedless lemons.
The citrusy flavour cuts through the richness of the dish and is enhanced with crispy bacon, a drizzle of honey and pistachios.
This labneh is a very versatile recipe to have on hand; divine on this French toast, of course, but equally delish smothered on regular toast, spooned over a bowl of fruit and drizzled with honey or even served dolloped onto shakshuka.
Recipe: French Toast with LemonGold® Labneh & Bacon Crumble
This sizeable stack is sure to sate any breakfast or brunch appetite. Fluffy French toast with dollops of lemon-infused labneh, crunchy bacon and pistachios and a drizzle of honey. It’s the ideal sweet-savoury way to start the day.
More than just a lemon
LemonGold® seedless lemons are so much more than a convenient flavour enhancer because the brand is backed by people with heart! You’ll find its farms in the rural areas of Limpopo, Mpumalanga, and the Western Cape, and here you’ll see them caring for the communities in which they operate.
“We make a long-term difference to the lives of people, not because we have to, but because helping others stands at the core of our business ethos.”
