Meyer lemons are one of my all time favorite lemons. They are sweeter, less acidic and juicer than your regular lemon. You will find them at the markets this time of year up until about April. They also have very soft skin that is tender enough and yummy to eat!

You can not, replace a Meyer lemon with a standard lemon in this recipe.

Meyer lemons have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than the more common lemon Lisbon or Eureka varieties. If your new to Meyers, your in for a treat.

Searching online, you’ll find tons of ideas. Alice Waters of Chez Panisse makes a relish out of preserved lemons, olives, shallots and herbs- great for the summer BBQ season. People are using them as toppings for pizza, in martinis, and even in lemony desserts. So get creative! And if you come up with something good, let me know! Continue Reading / See Additional Photos
