Way back in June, I was intrigued by the idea of growing a citrus plant. So I brought home an Improved Meyer Lemon from the nursery. You can click here to see it when the fruit was small and green.
Watching these small orbs begin to ripen was thrilling! Despite being tempted to leave the fruit to cheer up the room I couldn't resist putting at least some of them to use. For something quite small they certainly pack a lot of juice and made the kitchen smell like summer.
My Lemon Drizzle cake turned out moist and oh so zingy. I couldn't have been more proud. My thoughts are already branching out...perhaps Key Lime pie next January?
