When life gives you lemons...

The yellow color of the lemon is the symbol of happiness and optimism and it's true, lemons bring an unspoken sense of joy! Lemon has the ability to purify things, the power to heal and increase love.
We could relate these two things with lemons as well, as they clear the negative energy away and bring happiness and joy. It is known as a natural cleanser, I love sliced lemons in my water too!
Sicilian lemons have a typical sweetness and taste that is very difficult to find anywhere else in the world which is no wonder they are a big part of the Sicilian culture and cuisine. Sicilians use the lemon to its full extent not only the juice but we utilize the peel and rind for culinary dishes and sweet limoncello liquor and they are commonly used in fashion prints. Lemons were brought by the Arabs to Sicily in the 10th century. The land around Mount Etna, the Mediterranean climate, sunny hot days and cold nights, coupled with volcanic soil, gives the .Sicilian lemons may be smaller in size than their Almalfi cousins, but they pack a punch. The sharp, acidic taste to contrast sugar is perfect for typical Sicilian recipes such as Granita!
