When life gives you lemons.... break out the tequila and salt.
Not what you were expecting? I found some Meyer lemons in the grocery store and had to try them. Now, we don't get a lot of "fancy" produce here in NH. After all, tomatoes come in two varieties, green or canned. So, when a store tries to incorporate an exotic item, I jump at the chance to learn about them.
(In all fairness, the local grocery stores have been doing a decent job of stocking unusual foods.)
In the 1960's, the California crop was destroyed due to a virus - which also threatened the entire citrus industry. One source survived and became part of the Improved Meyer Lemon.
More recently, the popularity of Meyer lemons has been attributed to Martha Stewart who publicizes recipes using the much loved lemon.
One recipe that I am going to try - Meyer Lemon Crostini Topping
2 Meyer Lemons, sliced
3 T olive oil
1 tsp rosemary
6 -8 whole shallots (cut in half if large)
Quarter the slices of lemon. Combine all ingredients and roast at 400 for 15 minutes. Serve on top of grilled bread.
