Lemon Olive Oil: Perfect for Catherine J. Gardner's New Chapbook

That's right, Catherine J. Gardner has a sweet little book available from Bucket o' Guts Press for only $6 U.S. I enjoy Cate's work (which has recently appeared in Fantasy Magazine and slated for Space and Time & PostScripts...yeah, that's right), and you should too.

Go to Bucket o' Guts website to order.

While you're waiting for your chapbook to arrive via post, you may want a snack. (Well, I'm usually hungry) I bring you a recipe for Lemon Olive Oil, which goes wonderfully on a crisp salad:

Lemon Olive Oil Recipe


1 large fresh lemon
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp. of peppercorns
1 c. of extra-virgin olive oil

Directions :

Scrub the lemon to remove surface impurities; rinse and dry well.
Heat a small, heavy saucepan to medium-low.
In a small bowl, zest the lemon into the olive oil.
Add bay leaf and peppercorns.
Transfer to the saucepan and heat for 10 minutes. Do not allow to scorch.
Cool slightly.
Transfer to a hot, sterilized bottle and seal.

This can be stored at room temperature for up to two months.

Oh, man, that looks good! I've got to add lemons to my shopping list now.

I can't wait to get my copy of Cate's chapbook too. Maybe I'll read it while eating a salad.

Cate Gardner said...

Woot! And a free recipe too. Far too cool.

Anthony Rapino said...

Sounds tasty. Oh, the salad dressing too.

K.C. - just don't dribble on the'll be a collector's item one day.

Cate - You said "ingenious wild plan". Not sure a recipe is ingenious, but it is a little wild.

Onipar - Yeah, if you like salad. (which I do)

Katey said...

It was definitely ingenious. I'll be sure to make some for my salad (which I eat almost daily!) while I'm reading my copy :D

very nice recipe/chapbook combination. it can be your new thing. we'll give you a book, and you can tell us what to eat with it :^)

not with it as, "what should we eat while consuming the book" but with it as in while reading the book.

it's good to be clear

Jamie Eyberg said...

I have been looking for a recipe like that. Really, thanks.

Aaron Polson said...

Katey - I'm all about adding value to the posts.

Samantha - I'd be glad to...just shoot me a title.

My pleasure, Jamie.
