The Art of Lemonade

  Cut Lemons

My grandmother has a lemon tree that grows giant sweet lemons (one of the benefits of living in Florida).  When we last visited her, she gave us a giant bag of lemons.  Rather than let the lemons spoil I used several of them to make lemonade.

While making the lemonade, I noticed that beautiful contrast between the bright yellow of the lemons, and the blue of our counter tops.  



My mother-in-laws truly old school juicer seemed to make the scene even more idyllic.

Later I will show you what I did with the peels.
