We all need a little sunshine to brighten up a dark and cold winter day. Today, I am here to bring you sunshine in the form of Meyer Lemon sorbet. Lemons remind us of summer because they are bright, juicy and refreshing. One bite into this sorbet and you will taste summer and feel the warm sunshine.
Meyer lemons are perfect for dessert because they are much sweeter than a standard lemon. The lemons from our tree are always huge. Many are the size of a medium orange and contain 2-3 times the amount of juice as a standard store bought lemon. You can often reduce the sugar content in dishes to account for the sweeter flavor of the Meyer lemon. If you can’t find Meyer lemons, you can certainly use standard lemons and increase the sugar.
The intense flavor of this sorbet is incredible. It is tart but slightly sweet. A small scoop is all you need to feel refreshed. Hosting a dinner party? Serve the sorbet in a cleaned out lemon rind to cleanse your palate. Enjoy!
