I've never been too focused on keeping up with the latest trends, but it was gratifying to see that Mingling happened to be ahead of the foodie curve in the case of Meyer lemons. We've been sipping these Meyer Lemon Drop Martinis since December, but this article was just published in Wednesday's New York Times Food & Dining section:
When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Pasta & Confit
It does feature some enticing recipes, including a shortbread tart with confit of Meyer lemon filling. I think Nic's Foolproof Lemon Tart on Baking Sheet that I reproduced here is an even better bet if you manage to get your hands on these lovely seasonal lemons. The February issue of Gourmet also extolls their virtues and features a recipe for a Meyer lemon souffle that I would like to try.
Never mind that the mainstream food media does stories on Meyer lemons every winter; I'm just going to consider this little blog a trendsetter... at least until the next food fascination comes along.
