5 Ways To Love Lemon

July 23, 2011

Lemons are so underrated. When we think of lemony flavor, it is usually just that: flavor. Most people don't buy lemons in their natural form. This is a pity, since the best part of the lemon is the zest, where all the essential oils live. 

Here are 5 ways to us lemons that shows their beauty and best of all, their depth of flavor. 

Lemon Meringue Pie
Seriously  lemony, this pie is super easy to make and creates a stunning finish. It's a showstopper. 

Meyer Lemon Marmalade
Two ingredients, how easy is that? 

Lemon Brunch Cake
This cake brings with it visions of ladies having afternoon tea. Truthfully, I would take a huge piece and they would kick me out. 

Meyer Lemon Limoncello
This is the sort of thing I would have to make, simply because it sounds a little like a science experiment. 

Lemon Cookies Dipped In Chocolate
Really, do I need to expound? Anything dipped in chocolate (except asparagus apparently) will only improve in flavor.
