That was a year in the making, for I’d sought them hard on my first US trip in 2011. Alas then, it wasn’t to be.
This December past, I had my sister bring 2 clam boxes full of Meyer lemons for me, and its right to say I’m obsessed. To add more juice to my ‘lemonade’, my friend, N brought me 10 more from her US trip in January! I’m in Meyer heaven.
For this reason, I’ve experimented non-stop with the juicy darlings……and come up with some gems, which I hope to share with you in the coming days. The one thing I haven’t made with Meyers which I am longing to are Lemon bars……but I will. Soon.
So, in the next few days, there will be lots of talk about the Meyer lemon- talk about its anatomy, wonderful ways to coax fruity, floral flavours from skin and pith, tips on growing your own Meyers and a series of guest posts from fellow Meyer lovers.
If you’ve had a special experience with Meyer lemons and would love to share it, let me know!
Till then, watch this space!
To the Meyer! To the Meyer!!
