For the Love of Meyer Lemons: Video & A Little Giveaway

by on April 1, 2013

This giveaway has ended, thank you all for sharing your love of meyer lemons. Scroll to end of post to see winner.

We do love to share, but sometimes it’s really impossible to pass around a few baskets of citrus from our garden to all you kind folks. When we can, we do enjoy sending out a little bit of our Southern California sunshine to friends in the chilly parts of the country. A little box of  citrus love can warm up even the coldest days during the Spring Season. We’ve given away some garden citrus before, but it’s been a while.

Because we love meyer lemons so much and we appreciate you all, we thought it’s time to share some of our garden meyer lemons. It’s not much, but for those of you who don’t get an opportunity to enjoy a really fresh meyer lemon, this little giveaway will bring a little warmth to the chilly part of your world.

And we made a little video, sharing a little glimpse of what’s sprouting up in the garden this month.

There’s just something special about meyer lemons. Their floral fragrance, their delicate beauty and vibrant flavors really add so many wonderful elements to cooking. One of our favorite articles on the many uses of meyer lemons always inspires us to continue cooking and creating new dishes with one of our favorite lemons. It’s so hard to not want to make everything on that list. When the conversation of meyer lemons comes around, everyone’s faces always seem to light up!

So sweet… and this video made me so jealous of your fresh citrus. Yeah, there are some perks of living in New England. But I think I could give them up for these beautiful lemons.

As for what I would do with them? Well, I think I might have to try my hand at a meyer lemon pie.

First, I would take photos of the lemons as I love to shoot food primarily. Then I would make a lemon bundt cake with a lemon citrus glaze to go over it and before eating (which would be hard not to do right away), I would photograph the cake with some the leftover lemons.

I would also try my hand at a lemon meringue pie as both my partner and I like it.

I recently discovered meyer lemons and I am in love! I had a meyer lemon pound cake at a cafe and savored every bite! I asked to see a meyer lemon and I couldn’t believe the fragrant aroma from an unpeeled lemon! I have not been able to find them for sale in Indiana. If I received a box from you, I would make the cake, cookies, lemonade, marinade and freeze some juice and grated peel to use throughout the year! What a special treat these little fruits are!!

29 Katrina Amstutz April 1, 2013 at 7:30 am

Definitely lemon bars, but I LOVE all lemon desserts so I would look for new recipes to try as well. Maybe try again to make Lemon Sticky Rolls: http://chocolate-coveredlove.blogspot.com/2013/03/lemon-sticky-rolls.html . And Lemonade for sure!

53 Heidi April 1, 2013 at 8:11 am

My favorite thing to make with meyer lemons is a spicy chutney to spread on anything edible :) and I’ve been dying to make a lemon poundcake with meyer lemons. I live in northern AZ and while citrus is huge down in the valley (Phoenix) it’s just too cold for meyer lemons up north – so I stock up when I’m on the road and find them. I’m wondering if I might be able to grow a meyer lemon tree in my house in a large pot? Thoughts? Thanks for sharing the meyer lemon goodness :)

54 Karen April 1, 2013 at 8:11 am

First, I would freeze some zest and juice to have for the summer months! Then, I think, lemon scones. And lots of lemon in my daily green juices!

I’ve started putting half a meyer lemon in my green smoothies. It gives them a great sweet and sour kick. That’s my favorite part about meyers–they are both sweet and sour at the same time.

I am so excited about this giveaway! Growing up, I loved going to my best friend’s house because her backyard had this HUGE lemon tree. I remember thinking they were so different from the lemons in the grocery stores. The skin felt smoother, the color a much deeper shade of marigold, and the smell…just amazing. Even though meyer lemons really lend itself to lemony-desserts, I have been feeling a bit under the weather lately and would love to use it in my lemon orzo chicken soup recipe. A ton of dill and good lemons really take this dish to the next level!

Oh my gosh, they are SO beautiful! It’s been a LONG winter here in Minnesota and if I was lucky enough to win them, I would make curd & preserves & just eat them plain :) My kids love the “puckeryness” of lemons in the summertime and this would scream us right out of our winter doldrums!! Thanks you two oxox

Ooooo Meyer Lemons – okay so first off would be a big jug full of lemonaide (so good), I would make lemon risotto (juice and zest), braised leeks in a lemon dijon sauce (inspired by a meal at the Edible Schoolyard) – juice and zest. I would make salted/picked lemons for moroccan fare. I would make lemon curd (seriously, have you ever tried meyer lemon curd – eyes rolling behind my head). I would make a killer ceviche, oh yeah. I would mix with raw honey for a killer facial mask. Use the empty rinds dipped in baking soda as a foot scrub. I would use every bit of the lemons.

Mmmm how I love Meyers. Unfortunately, I must drive 2 hours to find them in my area and only when they’re in season , which I presume is only about 4 weeks out of the year since that’s the only time I see them. I would make lemon bars, lemon poppyseed cake, preserved lemons, lemon syrup so I would have them longer to enjoy, lemon sugar, and my hubbie has a divine gin cocktail recipe I would have him prepare. I might even try my hand at lemon bitters. Again something so I could enjoy the flavor of Meyers longer than a few weeks! Thank you for this opportunity!

It’s such a shame this giveaway is only available in mainland USA, they are impossible to find in UK, or mainland Europe.

What a nice thing to do for one lucky reader and such fun to read other people’s ideas. First thing I would do is slice one and give a section to my 3yr old son, who for some reason, loves to lick lemons. His reaction is adorable and he genuinely enjoys the tart charge he gets. Then it would be a small batch of preserved lemons for the savory and a lemon poppyseed cake to enjoy the sweet. I would probably use the remnants for lemon water for a few days enjoying that I was using the fruit completely and that it came from such a nice place!

We would begin the afternoon in the garden with Meyer Lemon Basil Lemonade where everyone would pick their own basil for their own drink. (Vodka optional!)

Next the group would settle down to lunch on the terrace with Meyer Lemon Chicken Piccatta served with Quinoa with Preserved Meyer Lemons and steamed asparagus.

Then we would make our way to the arbor for Meyer Lemon Chiffon Pie with a glass of Meyer Lemoncello!

As the afternoon ended I would send everyone home with a party favor bag filled with Meyer Lemon Snap Cookies and recipes cards for every dish and offer a heartfelt thanks to Diane and Todd for sending a box of California Sunshine to Alabama!

Lovely give a way! I would make many things – the smittenkitchen tart that uses the entire meyer lemon for the fililng, lemon curd, lemon cookies with lemon frosting, a lemon meringue pie in memory of my father, the list could go on for quite a while! I have a meyer lemon tree but I don’t seem to get them to the picking stage, it is, however, blooming with some lovely flowers now so I will have continued hope (even though I live in the Pacific Northwest).

Beautiful video, Guys! ( unbelievable, but we have a ridgeback and a boxer, too!) So, in addition to the standards ( lemon curd, lemon bars, lemon meringue pie… which are all delicious) I would make Housemade meyer lemon chevre topped with lavender honey; Morrocan chicken tagine with presereved meyers and olives; Neopolitan limoncello & wild thyme sorbetto in frozen meyer lemon cups; Housemade burrata with meyer lemon and prosciutto wrapped in grape leaves; and last but not least, Meyers & Rosemary infused Tito’s artisenal vodka ( aged 21 days) used in making amazing Foamy lemon rosemary martitnis…Yes, I think I will go and have one now!

First thing is my newest obsession, lemon, mint iced tea. Next it would have to be a lemon pie with meringue a mile high and my Asian citrus pork loin over lemon rice. Cut out cookies for my granddaughters with icing made from fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar. There’s more but, I have to keep some secrets. Paleeeeeeze let me win, it’s been a long winter in CoMo!

When my Dad was still alive, he would send me a box of “gold” every spring. Just putting the lemons out in a basket made the house so fragrant. His favorite thing with the Meyer lemons, was a lemon
yeast bread that I made him. Very light and airy with a wonderful flavor. I would do that again.

What a wonderful giveaway! We still have over a foot of snow in the woods outside our house, so no Meyer lemons are growing here!

I’d make lemonade, Lemon Shaker Pie and Meyer lemon marmalade. YUM!

I left my Meyer lemon tree in CA almost 20 years ago. Put a lemon tree in S. Arizona. Not the same. I’d make Lemon Snow Bars and Lemon chicken over garlic lemon pasta. Lemoncello sounds good too.

288 She Cooks April 7, 2013 at 9:14 am

First I’d slice 1 into wedges, sprinkle 1 wedge with salt & enjoy it with a glass of iced tea garnished with fresh mint & flavored with a squeeze of 1 wedge. The rest of the wedges would be put in fridge for repeat of same treats. Then I’d sit back & plan making roast lamb rubbed with lemon recipe, accompanied with Greek style potatoes & tomatoes & lemon. While lamb roasts, the rest of the lemons calls for cookbook reading to use more Meyers. In my hand would be lemon wedge squeezed into a vermouth & tonic water on rocks.

We planted a lemon Meyer tree 2 years ago, a really small one. It is doing good but we did not see the harvest yet. I am not sure what’s wrong. It is covered with flowers again so I am hoping, maybe this Fall we will see some fruits? Anyway, what I would do with lemons is a lemon curd. Thank you for the opportunity!

300 Gayle April 7, 2013 at 10:41 pm

My teenage son has become quite the baker and lemon is his favorite. I’d let him lead the way but my guess is that he/we’d start with lemon bars or lemon curd.
