Last Chance This Season
Some of you may think of Summer when the topic of lemons comes up. Maybe you're thinking of lemonade or Lemon Meringue Pie. Or Hostess Pies, for all I know...what I will say is this: citrus fruits are Winter fruits. If they were placed in those old categories of fashion~makeup~color charting from years back, Lemons (regardless of their 'sunny' color) are 'Winters'. So, with this in mind, please note that the last batch of Meyer Lemon & Vanilla Jam for this season has been made. I'm movin' on to rhubarb, berries, edible posies, and then on to early stone fruit offerings. If I may be so bold to suggest something?? You may want to scoot on over to Salt & Straw on NE Alberta Street or to The Woodsman Market on 45th & SE Division ASAP. They have stores of the lemony golden goodness just waiting to come home with you. Slather on biscuits, on English muffins, crepes, waffles, your arm, pancakes, roast chicken, ice cream (it is delicious on Salt & Straw Vanilla...). You decide. But be prepared: it won't last & you'll be sad when you have to wait till next Winter before it comes around again!
