Before you know it, we will have to say so long to Meyer lemons, at least until next year. As it is, we are already way past peak season; however, Meyer lemons can still be found, if you are lucky, through April. So, if you are fortunate enough to have access to Meyers (and lucky you, if you have a Meyer lemon tree!), seize these fleeting days and make something lemony sweet.
A few weekends ago, my husband showed me a tweet by the feisty (and very endearing) Chef Gordon Ramsey:
So, I had to make one. With Meyer lemons.

Oh, it was very good. And not at all difficult to make. You can make one, too…find the recipe here.
