Meyer Lemons: Recipes Redux

When Bill (or life, as they say) gives you a Meyer lemon, go for it. . . after these ellipses, place any number of plates by adding lemons.

That morning, while visiting family and friends in the Sacramento Valley to pick from the trees in his backyard, my friend Bill gave me a bag of Meyer lemons. Bill has been gifting me these beauties for several years now and the joy of receiving them never fades.

You see them there; The picture was taken a few minutes ago in my rather dark winter kitchen. Mayer lemons are to winter what the sun is to summer. pieces of golden sunshine that light up and perfume the house. infuse food with smooth tangerine and lemon essence; pushing away the still cold and gray remnants of winter.

Tonight I will add juice and flavor to this sauce with savoy lacquer .

Tomorrow I will probably make the same syrup , but without much alcohol.

I won't be giving you a new recipe today, but photos and links to previous recipes to encourage you to use Meyer lemons in your cooking repertoire. (I know some of my older posts leave a lot to be desired, both in terms of content and photography. I laugh. I laugh. I'll fix them one day. Or not.)

Recently, several completely unrelated readers told me that they used it as inspiration to create their own recipes. I like.
