Meyer Lemons

Is there anything better than the smell of a Meyer lemon? Well, maybe the blossoms that show up in the spring. 

Sure, Meyer lemons aren't exactly easy to grow here. We were out in the cold last winter covering our trees in the freezing temperatures, adding compost and compost tea all year, trimming the lower branches and generally doing everything we could to keep these babies happy, but this is the moment where every minute was worth it. 

Our trees in the backyard are heavy with beautiful, fragrant Meyer lemons and I've been doing a little research to find some recipes that really do justice to this wonderful fruit. 

Limoncello, anyone?

(I've seen some South Texas Meyer Lemons at Wheatsville, so you don't have to feel left out if you can't go pick a few in your backyard like us. Sorry to rub it in.)
