“The yellow or green one?”, I would ask my mom this every time she asked me to get a lime or lemon in the fridge.

My mom always called limes lemons in Cantonese. I never thought much of it or that it was wrong until I started watching Chinese cooking shows. I would hear the participants talk about slicing the lemons, but see them grab the yellow ones (the accurate ones) but not the green ones, which we used at home.

I realized that my mom just likes calling both the same name because they taste similar and we mostly bought limes for cooking. So after I learned about it, I would ask my mom to clarify which one she was asking for, the yellow or green one whenever I’m in the kitchen helping her.

Overtime, she started a collection of lemon and lime plants at home and began to call lemons lemon and lime limes in Cantonese. The lemons and limes we grew never grew too big, the biggest ones about 1 ½ inches. Even so, she would get super excited seeing them grow and being able to use those instead for cooking rather than buying them at the store. When we have too much to finish before they turn bad, my mom would make this preserved lemon that she would make us have whenever we have a sore throat or feeling unwell.

I, on the other hand, would try to make any lemon dessert I can usually starting with cookies and then bread or cake. They are always super tangy, making them even more refreshing for the summer. I was thinking about how citrusy those lemons were and decided to make this Lemon Curd Tart celebrating the spring and summer.

This lemon curd tart is creamy, light and refreshing and easy to make. If you want a slice of this lemon tart, let’s start baking!
