Meyer Lemons!

The other night I was strolling down the decidedly non-gourmet aisles of Cub Foods, when what to my wondering eyes appeared, but a small, lonely, misplaced bag of Meyer Lemons! 

I didn't even know we could buy them in Minnesota.  I tried to grow a Meyer Lemon tree at home once, but it didn't survive the dry winter air in my house.  Since these are not waxed, I am excited to use them in a special lemon poppyseed muffin recipe.  For once I won't have waxy zest!  As you can see from the picture, they are a much deeper yellow than the standard grocery store lemons.  I used one in a batch of guacamole tonight, and in my opinion, they smell and taste exactly like old-fashioned lemon drop hard candies.
