Meyer Lemon | Inspiration
My love affair with Meyer lemons started at an early age. My momma didn't do a lot of gardening, but she was unstoppable with her Meyer lemon trees - we always had a couple in old wine barrels on the back patio, and the master tree bursting with fruit in the front yard. While they're referred to as a lemon, the dark yellow delicacy is actually a cross between a true lemon and an orange. It wasn't until I became a little, ahem, older that I discovered how delicious the tangy sweet juice is in desserts, savory dishes and especially cocktails. While peak season for these beauties is actually winter (along with most citrus fruits), I can't help get a hankering every time the weather heats up.
