Meyer Lemons at the Market…

November 2, 2018

Meyer Lemons

My personal favorite has come back in season.  We just started harvesting our organic Meyer Lemons and will be bringing them to the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers’ Market tomorrow.  I use Meyer Lemons daily when they are in season, sliced into water, juiced for brines or salad dressings, zested to mix in with roasted vegetables and pastas.  I use them with fish, poultry and even squeeze over berries for dessert.  They are somehow incorporated into my cooking daily when in season.

Marsha and I also preserve jars of them every winter so they can be used throughout the rest of the year.  (The instructions and a recipe are included here.)  This recipe can be used for either Meyer Lemons or Lisbon Lemons, both preserve nicely.  Meyers are not as tart, but still have a nice tangy flavor.  I use the preserved Meyer Lemons when roasting, or chopped finely into salads.  Either way, preserved or fresh, you will find that Meyer Lemons add an incredible flavor to your cooking.
