Seduced by Costco (Meyer Lemons)

Hi all,

While in Costco last week, I was seduced into buying 4 pounds of Meyer Lemons. I've used a few . . . but have something like three pounds left.

What can I make?

  1. Lemon curd freezes beautifully and has innumerable uses. You can make a tart, use it as the filling for a cake, mix it with a dollop of whipped cream and serve it with berries . . . .

    1. If you might like to have (or give as gifts) a syrup for making homemade soda or flavoring drinks, this recipe has a long shelf-life and is wonderful made with Meyer lemons:

      1. Preserved lemons are great flavor boosters

        1. I like meyer lemonade, or meyer lemon sorbet - both use quite a bit of juice. Lemon ice cream. You can juice them and freeze the juice in cubes to pop into things later. I have preserved them. I love them in Alice Medrichs lemon bars because her recipe is so lemony. Also love it in Pierre Herme's lemon cream tart. That is sinfully wonderful.

            Meyer lemon marmalade is delicious and always a welcome gift. It is good plain (sugar, lemons, water), with a vanilla bean, with pear, with pear and vanilla, with pear and a bit of cardamom...your get the picture.

            In my hands, five lemons make about five or six 8-oz jars.
