WIN - Meyer Lemons

Lemon Ladies Orchard, located in Emerald Hills, CA grows all natural, sweet Meyer Lemons. These special lemons are hand picked on Sunday in my orchard and shipped to your kitchen Monday morning USPS Priority Mail. The Meyer lemon originated in China over 3000 years ago. It is thought to be a cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon. These lemons are sweeter, with a distinct floral note, than lemons you find in supermarkets.

Lemon Ladies Orchard is a Certified Naturally Grown operation. We use only organic citrus fertilizer, water, sunshine and love to raise these beautiful lemons. Each tree is named for a woman who inspired me and helped me accomplish my dreams and goals. I think that is what makes the lemons so sweet!

Meyer Lemon Marmalade Recipe from Karen Morss/Lemon Ladies Orchard

4 cups sliced lemons (approx. 2 lbs MEYER LEMONS (6 for slicing plus 2 more for juice)

4 cups WATER
4 cups SUGAR


Halve lemons crosswise and remove seeds. Tie seeds in a cheesecloth bag. Cut each half into four quarters and thinly slice (1/4”). Combine lemons with bag of seeds and water in a 5-quart non-reactive pot and let mixture stand, covered, at room temperature 24 hours.

Bring lemon mixture to a boil over moderate heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 45 minutes. Skim off foam and remove any seeds that remain floating about.

Stir in 4 Cups sugar and 1/2 Cup fresh juice and boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally and skimming off any foam.
Taste and add a little more sugar if necessary (1/4 cup at a time). Cook until a teaspoon of mixture dropped on a cold plate gels, about 30 minutes. I use a candy thermometer and cook until it reaches 220 degrees.

Put empty jars in 250 degree oven for 15 minutes.

Ladle hot marmalade into jars, filling to within 1/4" inch of top. Wipe rims with dampened cloth and seal jars with lids.

Put filled jars in 250 degree oven for 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Yields approx. 6 half-pint jars. Since we are using 9oz jars, I expect yield to be five jars.

Marmalade will store in a cool, dark place, up to 1 year.

Recipe originally adapted from Lady Marmalade.
