freshly-squeeze me anything you want, mum!


So this is why grown women (I mean me) want their mums around when babies are about to be born. I love this simple lime juice. Basically, mum squeezes about eight limes and adds the juice to a sugar syrup. Then she plops in about six dried sour plums (酸梅) and lets that concentrate steep. About two hours. Then it is ready to dilute with water and ice, according to how much of a lime punch is liked. Mum stores the rest of the concentrate in the fridge for next time. She tells me, “It’s packed full of vitamins.”
