What exactly is a Meyer Lemon?
Everyone raves about them...but what's so special about the Meyer Lemon? Well, It's a cross between a Mandarin Orange and Lemon which gives it a sweeter more distinct taste.
While things are quite up here in the Northeast...citrus season is in full swing. Tis' the season to support our southern/western friends by buying up all of the "grown in the USA" oranges and lemons you can get your hands on.
A fun source for Meyer lemons is through Lemon Ladies Orchard. Treat yourself to a box of lovingly grown lemons...and just think of all of the fun things you can make: marmalade, lemon bars, lemon bread, Lemon Ricotta Almond Cake, etc. etc.
