Lemons… so bright and cheerful. Every late winter/spring I start craving everything lemon; lemon bars, lemon meringue pie, and lemon curd. Maybe it is the sunny yellow color after the dark winter days. My favorite kind of lemons are Meyers, they are so sweet and fragrant and my Grandpa in California has a tree that growing up we always got lemons from. But when Grandpa’s Meyer lemons aren’t available I make do with regular ones and buy a big bag when they are on sale.
