There is the old adage, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” But how much lemonade can you make in one lifetime, really? I think we are working toward finding out! We have two lemon trees in our yard. This week, I picked up at least 50 lemons that had fallen from the tree. Never mind the 100 that still remain up high where I can’t reach them AND the 200 new buds that are forming. So we decided to try our hand at making lemonade and made good use of the Fanny Farmer Cookbook again. At my house it is known as “The Idiots Guide to Cooking Everything from Scratch.” (Again, thank you, Mom!)
So we have stored up the fresh lemon juice, frozen some fresh lemon juice and made sugar syrup to keep in the fridge for the hot days. Not as easy as whipping out the Country Time powder but great fun for the boys to juice all the lemons. And Jadyn got in a few sour looks while sucking on a piece or two. Lemonade anyone?
Next week… applesauce!
