I have a question about the recipe "Avocado with Pomegranate Molasses, Tomatoes, Citrus, and Basil" from Helenthenanny. Live on a citrus ranch but have never heard of pink variegated lemons. Are regular lemons ok with this recipe?
Diana B is a trusted home cook.
They are vanishingly rare and scary expensive, so I'm going to say 'yes.' They're a little less acidic than regular lemons, though, so if you can get Meyer lemons, that might be a better substitution. If not, I wouldn't worry about it.
Thanks Diana--I have a meyer lemon tree so that is easy and makes sense.
Meyer Lemons have less acid. Use half orange juice and regular lemon juice.
