what is it?

Meyer lemons are not true lemons, but believed to be a cross between a lemon and a mandarin or orange. Compared to regular lemons, Meyer lemons are thinner- and smoother-skinned, rounder in shape, and have a deeper yellow-orange hue. Less acidic than regular lemons their zest and juice has herbal, even floral undertones that can add a wonderful nuance to any recipe calling for lemons.

kitchen math:

1 medium lemon = about 3 Tbs. juice

don't have it?

Regular lemons; but you may want to add sugar to balance the sharper flavor.

how to choose:

Ripe Meyer lemons have taut, thin skins with an orangy hue. Their thin skins make it difficult to transport them long distances, so they're a specialty product outside of California, where most of the U.S. crop is grown. Choose lemons that are unblemished, shiny, and heavy for their size.

how to store:

Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
