My mom and Mike have 2 Meyer Lemon trees in our yard and when we arrived I noticed the entire thing was loaded with ripe fruit. I grabbed a basket and plucked them one-by-one off the limp branches. First thing that came to mind on that abnormally hot day was to whip up some lemonade. I searched around for a recipe and played around with it a little. The 1/3 cup of sugar didn't sweeten it enough but I didn't want to add more sugar so I added 2 Splenda packets. I also crushed some mint in the glass which added a nice touch.
Meyer Lemon Lemonade
16 lemons, enough to make 2 cups of lemon juice
2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar, or to taste
2 packets Splenda (optional)
1 bunch mint
1. Juice the lemons and combine with water.
2. Add sugar and stir well.
3. Chill well and serve over ice.
If you like, top with sparkling water, or crush a few sprigs of mint and steep them in the lemonade as it chills.
