Meyer Lemon

If a recipe calls for: Meyer lemon

You can substitute: Half lemon, half orange

Meyer lemons are actually a hybrid between lemons and mandarin oranges. Their flavor is sweeter and milder than a regular lemon but more tart than a standard orange. Mix equal parts lemon and orange juice (or zest, depending on your recipe) for a close match.
