The Meyer Lemon is favored for its mild, sweet, juicy flesh. Although still too tart to eat out-of-hand, Melissa's Meyer Lemons are useful for flavoring both savory and sweet dishes alike.
If you haven't heard the hype about Meyer lemons, well, then you're missing out! These one-of-a-kind lemons are uniquely different from all of the rest of the competing varieties. These citrus beauties have low-acid, are just the right amount of sweet, and are significantly less tart than others. The result? The perfect culinary tool. The mixture of sweet juice, tangy zest, tender skin and unique flavor is what separates the Meyer lemon from the rest.
While you're still not able to eat out-of-hand, Meyer lemons are perfect for flavoring both savory and sweet dishes alike. Squeeze lemon into water and add to teas, or use in salad dressings. Ideal for marinating fish and chicken without making them too sour. Use zest over vegetables, pies crumbles and more!
The skin should be smooth and brightly colored. Choose firm lemons that are heavy for their size. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 10 days or until the fruit begins to show signs of age.
