Carlotta arrived with a bag of lemons bigger than her suitcase.
“There’s a lot you can do with that,” we said.
“We wash them, we cut them, we squeeze them and pack them with salt and lemon juice. Then we let them sit in a dark quiet place till they’re ready.”
“Then we make the lemon chicken tagine….”
“I’ll be fine then,” Carlotta said.
“Yes you will. Squeeze.”
