    Default Meyer's Lemons

    I have a whole bunch of these. What do you use them for, if you use them?
    They are fat and a round as navel oranges.

    Lucky you! You can use them as you would any lemon, but they make a
    heck of a good lemon curd tart. Made one for Christmas Eve dinner & DH
    is still raving about it.

    I uses them for making ceviche and in my tea. The zest makes a good
    lemon-olive oil, and it goes well on many pasta dishes. Grilled
    porterhouse in the style of bistecca Fiorentina is well served with a
    drizzle of Meyer Lemon Oil. Meyer lemon pie. A slice in your
    margarita. Served in slices over halibut or veal cutlet. Pretty
    much anywhere you'd like lemon but with a lighter flavor. You're
    lucky. My two trees produced a total of 4 lemons. I'd like to make
    Moroccan preserved Meyer lemons and use them with chicken or
    lamb and olives.

    I use them for anything that calls for lemon.

    My niece has a tree full she can't get rid of. Thanks for the ideas. I am
    thinking that I might get her to send me more, see how many she can get in a
    flat rate "priority mail" box, which ships for about $10, and include $20
    for her trouble. (She's a poor college student.) She also has the fattest,
    most juicy tangerines, they are just rotting on the ground.

    I had never seen them before! I think I would like to juice them and freeze
    the juice, use for lemonade all year round. Do you find they have a slightly
    "orangey" flavor? I was just reading in wikipedia that they originate in
    China and are some sort of lemon bred with an orange.

    Sounds nice. I have never, ever made lemon chicken. I am not even sure I
    have had lemon chicken.

    The original Meyer lemon even looked like an orange with an orange skin.
    They changed the variety here in the US due to the fact that the
    originals carried a disease that could be devastating to the entire US
    citrus crop. I had one of the originals twenty years ago and it just
    tasted like a lemon to me.

    Now we raise the Ponderosa lemon, it is supposed to be a natural cross
    between a grapefruit and a lemon. Very thick skin, lots of seeds, plenty
    of juice. We put up fifteen or twenty quart bags of lemon cubes every
    year. That's what we've been doing today and still have three
    five-gallon buckets of them to go. The Ponderosa grows true from the
    seed also.

    It's an ice. You mix the juice with simple syrup (and some water if you
    want) and freeze it in a big metal lasagna pan. Set the timer for 30
    minutes and rake the stuff in the pan with a fork. Keep doing this every
    30 minutes. Takes about 2 hours but it is a wonderful dessert. After
    it's all frozen, move it to a container and put it back in the freezer.
    Take out about a half hour before serving and serve a scoop in a nice
    sherbet dish or even a shallow wine glass.

    It's grainier than water ice or sherbet. I use Splenda and water to make
    the simple syrup because DH is a Diabetic. It's one of his favorite
    desserts. You can also add a little vodka to the mix to keep it from
    freezing too hard.

    I've made it with Valley Lemons, regular lemons, mixed lemons and limes,
    oranges, grapefruit, cantaloupe and watermelon. The cantaloupe and
    watermelon need to be seeded and pulverized in the blender.

    Maybe that's what used to grow at my mom's old place in San Diego
    county. Grandpa thought they were pomelos. They looked sort of like
    gigantic (round) lemons.

    Very pretty! I will need new glasses. I decided that I am going to get my
    niece to fill up a box and send them to me, I will send her shipping cost
    and some money for her time to help with school! I might do the same with
    her tangerines. She can make some money and I can get cheap citrus!

    My mom had a prolific Hachiya persimmon tree when she lived down in
    San Diego county. It produced a lot more fruit than she and the rest
    of the family could ever consume. She used to come up for Halloween
    when the kids were little, and she'd bring me at least a bushel of
    persimmons in various stages of ripeness. I kept what I could use and
    gave copious quantities to my inlaws and friends.
