This is just a quick recipe for my dad, who’s looking for ways to preserve meyer lemons for easy transport.

MEYER LEMON SIMPLE SYRUP (adapted from marthastewart.com)

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
grated zest of one lemon

Simmer the above together until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is slightly thickened, approximately 10 minutes. Allow it to cool before putting it into a can or bottle for storage. Keep syrup refrigerated.

If you want to use the juice too, I think that would work fine. Maybe just add equal amounts of sugar to any lemon juice you add.
