Thread: Lemons?

    Default Lemons?

    Is it just me (or where I live) or are lemons really expensive? They
    have been 3 for 2 bucks for what seems like forever. Limes, I got 7 for
    a dollar just last week, but the lemons aren't budging. Just when I
    finally got my friends prized Limoncello recipe....

    They tend to be expensive at this time of year, but it may also depend on
    where you buy them. There is one grocery store where I shop when I need to
    stock up on more exotic items and one where I get better produce for a much
    better price. The lemons in the first were 99 cents each and dropped to 79
    cents. In the other there were 2 for $1.and dropped to 3 for $1.

    Lemons were .99 each today at Safeway.

    It's crazy since lemons are on trees across the street.

    Better you should walk across the street. :-) Luckily , we have a prolific
    lemon tree in the back yard, and Mexican limes are dirt cheap in the local
    stores.

    Right! They are always expensive at the grocery store, but my local
    green grocer sells both Meyer lemons and regular ones. Meyers are
    often 10 for a dollar, regular lemons are several for a dollar - I
    don't remember how many - but no less than 3 or 4.

    I just discovered Meyer lemons a few months ago. I bought a bag of them
    because they seemed to be such a good deal. Then I discovered that they aren't
    really lemons. They have an orange taste to them.

    Unfortunately for me - I am on the east coast and no matter where I go,
    lemons are never less than 75 cents each. Meyer lemons? I hardy ever
    see those!
    I guess I just have to wait for the prices to come down a bit.

    no help for limoncello, but for your juice needs, i recommend minute
    maid frozen juice:

    <http://www.aviglatt.com/Product_7216.html>

    ....which should be cheaper in your supermarket than shown here. (i
    pay $1.79, i think.) juice of approx seven lemons. it's not nasty
    like real lemon, and keeps for six weeks in the refrigerator after
    defrosting. very handy to have around.

    Meyer lemons are THE lemons to make Moroccan preserved lemons. I wish I
    could get them more often.

    In my supermarket I have found them by the bag, in that section
    where you'd find bags of apples and oranges. While it's not
    super cheap, it beats the 'per lemon' price by a lot. Worth a look,
    maybe they have that where you shop.
