Wanna see what came home with me from San Diego?
Sunshine! That is nearly 10 pounds of Meyer lemons straight from a backyard tree. They aren't all clean and polished like grocery store lemons are, but they scrub up beautifully. Today, two of them will become a lemon meringue pie. I'm considering make a bit of a twist to the recipe, but that will involve going to the store. That may or may not happen.
BTW, I didn't seek out the trendy lemon. It just happened to be what my brother in law had growing in his backyard. Meyer lemons just aren't available to me in my area at all, so it will be interesting if they live up to the hype.
I have a lot of cooking to do. What doesn't get used this week will be juiced and the juice will be frozen. I'm going to have to research the best way to save the zest. I use more zest than juice in my cooking so it would be sad to not find a good way to store it long term.
