What's the deal with Meyer Lemons?
Okay, so thanks to Pinterest, I am now seeing all these great recipes that call for Meyer Lemons. But what the heck is the difference between a Meyer Lemon and a regular lemon?
According to Wikipedia, “the Meyer lemon is a citrus fruit native to China thought to be a cross between a true lemon and either a mandarin or common orange.”
Well, either way, it sounds and looks delicious. So, off to the store I go…
Gosh darn it, I cannot find them anywhere!!! None of the big grocery chains or little product marts have them. My favorite little market guy had never even heard of them!
I'm considering getting a Meyer lemon tree to keep in the house… 😀
Anyone have any experience or thoughts?
