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
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.
