Thought of the Day 2010 #16 - Meyer Lemons

I picked up a couple of pounds of Meyer lemons the other day. They're a
small citrus fruit that is believed to be a cross between a lemon and
mandarin oranges. I put a call out for recipes and a couple of people
mentioned curd. I only remember having jarred curd once or twice, but I
had never tried Meyer lemons in *anything* before, so what da
was worth a shot. Turns out lemon curd is super easy to make..and it
tastes fabulous!! Now...what to put it on. Ivan suggested cheesecake.
Lemon and cheesecake?? You bet. So, as I write this a cheesecake is
brewing in the oven. Tomorrow...the full Meyer lemon deliciousness will
be had!
