What should I do with lots of meyer lemons?

Asked by sfgal (277 points ) February 24th, 2009

I have a huge bag of fresh meyer lemons from a friend’s tree. Besides lemonade, what can I make with meyer lemons? Is it possible to make sorbet at home without any special machines? Or does anyone have favorite recipes for other yummy lemon treats?

when life gives you lemons..lemonade…or even lemon curd.

Or as Atmosphere says: When Life Hands You Lemons, Paint That Shit Gold.

If life deals you lemons, make lemonade. If it deals you tomatoes, make Bloody Marys.

I was going to add something but bythebay has pretty much rounded up every idea I had. Is that sour grapes or just sour lemon juice?

@Darwin sorry

@Bluefreedom: The very reason I grow tomatoes in the summer :)

@bythebay – actually I grow tomatoes to get fresh tomato sandwiches. Yum!

Well, you said no lemondade, but I am a big lemonade fan. Act like a kid and sell it for a quarter. Kidding.
My input is lemonade, basic, but really good.

What about Lemon Meringue? :P
