Simple Sundays | Meyer Lemons & Pie

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.

And if pie is not your thing, check out this old but very comprehensive Los Angeles Times article – they offer 100 things to do with a Meyer lemon. I bet something will strike your fancy!

    I recently discovered the beauty of meyer lemons — its such a beautiful blend of orange and lemon flavors. I love that photo of the bowl of squeezed lemons, I can almost smell the bright citrus aromas. Your pie looks scrumptious!!!

    I am not a Gordon Ramsey fan, but if the pie turned out well then I’m tempted to have a go at it – it does look very pretty! Gorgeous photos, Liren =)

    Beautiful pie. Lemons aren’t my favorite thing, but I do know some people who love lemon pies that this would make very happy!

    This is a great way to celebrate meyer lemons. I haven’t made a pie in a long time…is this a sign I need to get moving? :)

    Just finished making a batch of candied vanilla kumquats. Sounds as if we’re both relishing the very last bit of winter citrus this weekend. The meringue on your pie is sheer perfection. Thanks for the beautiful visuals, once again!

      Oh, the adorable kumquats, yes, I must do something with them before they disappear, too. Candied vanilla kumquats sounds divine!

    Lemons make everything taste better! I grew up with citrus trees in our back yard – I miss them now that I live in new England! Beautiful Lemon Meringue Pie!

    I’ve made lots of recipes using Meyers but I think never a Meyer lemon meringue pie. Love that this is so simple, I’m off to visit my mom to pick Meyer lemons off her tree. Enjoy your Sunday, Liren.
