I don’t know if you’ve seen them in your grocery store, but in the stores around here, there are these little bags of curiosity, full of a citrus fruit named Meyer Lemons. We don’t see them all the time in this neck of the woods, and I simply couldn’t resist the temptation to try these lovely little creatures.
They are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange, so sayeth Wikipedia. They are very fragrant, their juice and zest is sweeter than a standard lemon, but still with that tangy burst of lemony flavor. The color of the zest is deeper than other lemons as well.
