What to do with too many Meyer lemons

alanbarnes | Jan 1, 2008 09:08 PM

It's been a good year for our lemon tree. We've given so much fruit to our friends and neighbors that they hide when they see us coming. We have preserved enough lemons to supply an entire Moroccan neighborhood for the forseeable future. We've eaten Shaker lemon pie until our teeth are rotting and my belt is bursting. There are a few gallons of lemon juice in the freezer waiting for the lemonade days of summer. Meanwhile, Meyer lemon hot toddies have gotten old. And while Meyer limoncello seems like a good idea, it can only use up a tiny fraction of the hundreds of lemons that will go to waste unless we can find a way to use them, preserve them, or give them away.

Any suggestions?
