Meyer Lemons have been on my list of things to try for a very long time and I finally found some! I have been on quite a muffin kick lately and I knew the Meyer lemons would brighten up the morning in a batch of muffins.
If Meyer lemons are new to you, they seem to be a cross between a lemon and maybe a mandarin orange. They are sweet enough to eat and are a little smaller than regular lemons. They can be pretty hard to find around here, but I am sure enjoying them!
Muffins are ideal for us because they are ready whenever the boys get in from feeding cows and breaking ice in the water tanks. These sure didn’t last long and I think I’m ready for another batch!
