Meyer lemons are very different from ordinary lemons. Originating in China and brought to America in the early 1900s, they are thought to be a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. Working with Meyers, there is a floral perfume to the rind — almost Neroli-like — and the fruit has a distinct mandarin flavor.

This recipe should be used only for Meyer lemons. The more common lemon calls for a different recipe and we’ll get to that in a later post.
