Inspiration for Lemon Recipes
What? Make lemonade? Why only lemonade? I love lemonade, but you could certainly also make something else, right?
And why are lemons used in the English language with a negative connotation? Sure they’re sour and acidic, but is that a reason to call something — like a car for example that doesn’t run well — a lemon?
Let me tell you, if you add some sweetness and other flavors to lemon, you can create extraordinary masterpieces in the kitchen.
Meyer lemons are my favorite . . .
What makes Meyer lemons so special?
- The skin of a Meyer lemon is quite thin and soft. You know how sometimes you cut into citrus, and there’s a thick white area between the skin and the fruit? That’s called the pith, and Meyer lemons only have a thin layer of this. Both of these things mean that the size of a Meyer lemon is probably about the size of the fruit inside the skin.
- Meyer lemons are extremely juicy, sweeter and less acidic than other lemons.
- The color of the skin and fruit is often an orange-yellow. Sometimes they even look like oranges.
