This is probably not news to many of you, but we have just learned about Meyer lemons. Most of the lemons in our stores are Eureka or Lisbon varieties, but Meyer lemons are believed to be a hybrid of an orange and a conventional lemon originating in China. The Meyer lemons are now grown in California, and this variety is prized for its thin skin and sweet, fragrant flesh–much sweeter than other lemons. However, it is more expensive (at least where we live), but well worth the extra money for recipes like the one listed here.
This lemon-buttermilk tart recipe is from Emeril Lagasse on Food Network. Here is the link. We served it with whipped cream and strawberries. This makes an excellent dessert; not too sweet, but a great palate cleanser after the main course.
