When I got home and looked at the lemons, the first thing I noticed was their gorgeous color, deep yellow with a hint of orange. The second thing I noticed was how full and plump they were. I pulled out my cutting board and knife and sliced into one. The skin was nice and thick. The inside was bright, juicy, and fragrant. I reached into the cupboard for a glass and filled it with ice. After removing the seeds from the lemon halves, I squeezed each half into the glass. I then opened a bottle of Perrier Sparkling Mineral Water and poured the liquid into the glass over the lemon juice. After a quick stir, I took my first drink. Cold, crisp, fizzy, lemony, and tart. Delightful!!
Whatever it was that I heard about these wonderful lemons in the past does not matter because now I have my own "amazing" thought of Meyer Lemons.
