I've made this recipe many times - love it!! - but this time, the lemon tasted bitter. Can this be helped?

The pith of lemons tends to be bitter (the white part between the flesh and the rind). I typically use Meyer lemons in recipes as I find them much sweeter than other varieties.

Sometimes time has a mellowing effect on bitter lemons. A pinch of sugar or salt can also work.

You can use meyer or sanbokan lemons if you are looking for sweeter.
