When Life gives you Lemons......

Relax and make my favorite Lavender Lemonade:

Make a simple syrup the night before using 3 cups of water with 2 cups of sugar. Bring to a boil, then pour over 1/4 cup dried lavender flowers in a quart masson jar, cover tightly and let infuse over night. Strain it in the morning. Mix 1/2 of this lavender simple syrup with 1 cup Myer Lemon Juice, in your 2 quart tupperware juice container, then fill with water. Save the other 1/2 Lavender Simple Syrup for another batch tomorrow. Enjoy!

I had my Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree in the yard for a good 5 years (really, that long?), before I got a decent harvest this year. What patience.......I pruned it yearly to give it good circulation and a place to hang its fruit. It looks happy; pretty and healthy.

It seems to be blooming perpetually; lemons year round would be great. A few weeks ago, I was affraid of a frost, so I went out and picked all the ripe fruit, squeezed them and put the juice in the freezer. Today I see there are many more fruit ready to pick, and many more blosoms.

Arthur's Lemon Ice:

I named these after a favorite episode of "King of Queens". Now, whenever I watch that show (doesn't matter what episode), I am always in the mood for a lemon ice.

Make a simple syrup with 1 cup water and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Boil, then let cool completely. Add 1 cup Myer Lemon Juice and some fresh lemon zest. Add to Vita Mixer 1/2 filled with ice cubes. Ready in an instant.
