do you think I should cut back on the sugar mixture because these lemons are so sweet ?

hey riveree want to come over and help "taste test"
yes, play with the sugar quantity, I do every time I make it, it always tastes just a little bit different...... I am always available for taste tests.....LOL!

Sorry!

The ones we had were from Appalachicola. They were salt-water washed and boxed.....maybe you can find a seafood shop that gets them in the same way? I'm in Jax, so if they can get here they can get to Ocala, I'd think.

Now that Limoncello looks intriguing, but grain alcohol? I'd be in big trouble!

Yuppers! You know I have room now for some fruit trees after clearing out all those awful non-native weed trees.

I love the idea of potting the citrus too, especially since chances are good I'll move again in a couple of years (I'm a compulsive mover ).

Those are the absolute best. ::sigh:: We used to eat them once or twice a week. We can get them here just as you describe, but I haven't been able to bring myself to pay so much yet.

A little limoncello goes a lo-o-ong way.
But it is really nice on a hot summer's evening.
I sure would like to get a Meyer lemon tree.

Can you believe there is no good seafood place here????? I have to drive over to Ormond to get oysters that are salt-water washed. I live in Silver Springs, so its just a 40 minute drive. You can get oysters at Publix or Albertsons, but they are only fit to grill, or make po'boys.
BTW, the limoncello can be made without the grain alcohol, just increase the vodka, I have made it both ways.....

$32 for a 1/2 bushel......but we didn't have to wash them and only had to drive 2 minutes around the corner to get them, so I figure it's worth the savings of time and money (gas).

We'll have to ask Karla where she bought her Meyer lemon trees.......
