Undeniably Delicious - Fresh Meyers are Here!

Undeniably Delicious - Fresh Meyers are Here!

Now through December 8th, Fairview Orchards, renowned for their beautiful Ojai, California grown citrus, is offering 10% off their fresh Meyer lemons.

What's all the excitement, you may ask? Aside from seeking out the sunny, sweet-tart Meyer lemon to add zest to your water glass, Meyers are also the foundation for many wonderful homemade holiday gifts. Candied peels, salty preserved Meyer lemons, sweet and delightful lemon curd, and the well-loved lemon bar cookie are just a few creative projects to enjoy and share with your friends and family.

And because Meyer lemons are milder and sweeter, their thinly sliced rind and zest can be oh-so-delicious in sandwiches, stewed or braised with chicken, and finely chopped into a gremolata or tapenade. We love this simple meyer lemon and green olive recipe adapted from Suzanne Goin's "Sunday Suppers at Luques", which can be eaten as a tapenade or salsa.

Enjoy!
