Meyer Lemon Lemonade

Thank you Jenn and Marc for the Meyer lemons from your tree! Thomas was so excited to try them, after hearing his Food Network hero Michael Chiarello wax poetic about them on multiple occasions. Jenn was barely out of the driveway when T was saying, "Thank you, Jenny Sue," and slicing them to juice them.

Here they are. I included the knife in the photo to give you an idea how much bigger they are then traditional Eureka lemons you find in the grocery store:

The flash made these look much more orange than they are in real life:

T showing off half (this one with no flash):

The 5 lemons made almost 2 cups of juice!

It was less tart than Eureka lemon juice so we cut the sweetening by half. In our Adventures in Lemonade post, I shared our lemonade recipe and to be honest/more accurate we usually only use about 3/4 cup sugar to 1 cup of water in our simple syrup.

Yum! Thanks J&M!!
