A LESSON IN LEMONS
Not all lemons are created equal with face puckering tartness. The ubiquitous lemons most of us think of are actually the variety known as Eureka lemons. These can be grown year round and have a thicker rind and a tart acidic flavor. But come winter shoppers can find the Meyer lemon, a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange with a thinner skin and a sweeter taste. R&L Farms brings fabulous citrus each Thursday to North Park Farmer’s Market so stop by for a side-by-side comparison and take some home to start experimenting.
If you’re looking to get your lemon fix another way, grab a bottle of Meyer lemon infused olive oil from Bistro Blends to drizzle over sautéed veggies or try Rockstar Preserves' Vodka Lemonade Curd spread on a scone from Belen Bakery.
