100 things to do with a Meyer lemon


Meyer lemons are in season
IF Cézanne had lived not in France but in Southern California, his still lifes would have overflowed with Meyer lemons. Plump, smooth-skinned, colored an unmistakable dark yellow -- canary yellow, the color of egg yolks or the sun at noon -- they're sweeter than other lemons, with an intoxicating aroma that has hints of honey and thyme.

In December I preserved some Meyer lemons and recently used them in a Moroccan chicken recipe - no one complained so it must have been good. I used the leftover lemony broth as a soup stock with rice and greens. There are some great ideas in this article among them letting the dog use a lemon as a chew toy to improve Alpo breath.
