Life Has Given Me Lemons...

...and they are delicious Meyer lemons! Well, and to be precise, I sought them out at Wild Oats yesterday, since I plan to make some lemon bars this weekend. I love this time of year when Meyer lemons crop up in grocery stores. For the uninitiated, they are a cross between a lemon and an orange, and they are in season November-March. Meyer lemons are rounder and smoother than regular lemons, and their juice is sweeter and less acidic than that of regular lemons. Lots of food magazines have recipes specifically for Meyer lemons, but I just use them with good dessert recipes that call for plain-ol' lemons. You can taste the difference, and they're wonderful!
