We've been so busy that hubby never got around to making lemon beef, and we're leaving for Illinois on Wednesday or Thursday for Christmas with my family.
I did make the hand lemonade, and it was awesome. I used my Rocket/Bullet type blender to mix water, Crystal Light pink lemonade, a few ice cubes, and a small finger from the hand. Whirred it up, and made a lemonade slushy with it (OMG, it was so, so, so good. Like a cross between an ICEE/slurpee and a lemon-shakeup from the fair).
The flavor is surprisingly reminiscent of candy lemondrops. It's not really sour at all.
The pith is really mild, not bitter as with most citrus. I saved a couple fingers for lemonades, and sliced the rest of the hand into thin strips and popped them into bottles of vodka. In a few weeks, they should infuse the vodka with a really nice lemon flavor, and the citron strips can still be used in recipes.
I would definitely buy it again if the price is decent. I bet it would be delicious candied or made into marmalade (not diet-friendly, but delicious).
