My Seven Favorite Meyer Lemon Recipes
One of my favorite times of year is when the Meyer Lemons start coming into season and I’ve begun to see them in my area supermarkets again so that means its time to getting cooking with Meyer Lemons! Meyer Lemons made their first appearance in the United States in 1908 when Frank Meyer introduced this hybrid of a lemon and mandarin orange. Frank was working for the US Agricultural Department and collected samples of this sweet lemon while in China. After almost losing the Meyer Lemon in the 1940’s a new and improved version was introduced, and that my friends is what we’re enjoying today.
Meyer Lemons are wonderful in desserts, but don’t stop there. Meyer lemons make delicious sauces, drinks and flavorings for many of your favorite dishes. Have fun and experiment with those little orbs of sunshine, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
