A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of our heavily burdened lemon tree. When I asked for suggestions on what to do with the lemons, a couple of people suggested homemade lemonade. I had never attempted to make lemonade before and the idea washed over my pretty quickly until a week later, when Design Mom published a great blog posted called 9 Secrets to Amazing Homemade Lemonade. I don’t want to spoil the ending but the first secret is: A lemon is a lemon unless it’s a lemon from your own tree, which of course are superior. Great, I was off to a flying start. I’m not going to rewrite the recipe here as it would be a waste of your time and mine but please go check it out. We did need to add another cup of water to get the strength right but after that CJ and I found it to be most enjoyable.
