Staying cool

Summer in the Philippines is becoming a test of our enduring character, don’t you think? And the average daily temperature tells us that we’re experiencing hotter summer each year. So we make our best effort to adjust and enjoy the warm weather before the rainy season hits in.

I also noticed that our calamansi ripens quite quickly this summer. If I remember correctly, we harvest ripe calamansi during the rainy season. But when I checked last weekend, our trees are teeming with ripe calamansi.! I think the summer heat is affecting the ripening process. But of course, we’re not complaining. More fresh calamansi juice for us! I made some mint ice cubes and popped them in a glass of freshly squeezed calamansi juice. Cool, citrusy and minty!
