Myer lemons are our second favorite citrus — after yuzu. 🙂 The flavor is a little sweeter and less acidic then the usual run of the mill lemons and adds a special touch to meals. Myer lemons are in peak season right now and ripe for preserving. Thanks to a generous friend my kitchen is overflowing with them and so I decided to try this quick preserve method inspired by Martha Stewart.
Having these preserved Myer lemons in your pantry means you are always dinner party ready! Add them to fish or chicken and you’ll have a delectable meal in no-time.Print
