When life gives you lemons . . . .
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, and you can create extraordinary masterpieces in the kitchen.
Please try to use Meyer lemons whenever you can.
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 also. 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.
