It’s Meyer Lemon season and time to try this delightfully sweet and tart shake.

PERSONAL NOTE:  I was given the gift of a Lemon Meyer tree two years ago when I moved to my delightful new apartment.  At first it lived in my bedroom, flooding it with the rich scent of lemon.  It prompted me to sing a lot:  “Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet.  But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat!”  I learned how to use a tiny brush to pollinate and remarkable six tiny lemons grew to full size for me to harvest in November.  The same thing happened this year.  When I moved the tree inside before the first hard frost, again there were the sweet-tangy flowers.  And this November, six more huge lemons that are amazing in scent and taste.  This shake is delightful with them.
