Double Up: Meyer Lemon Marmalade & Meyer Lemon Vanilla Bean Marmalade

As the poet Sir Mixalot penned in his beloved”Baby Got Back”, you can “double up” on Meyer Lemon Vanilla and Meyer Lemon Vanilla Bean Marmalade. (Sorry, I couldn’t help it.)

Why Meyer Lemons?

These delicate skinned beauties are smaller than the Eureka lemons you often find in your local grocery store. Meyer Lemons are a cross between a Mandarin orange and a lemon. The flavor is not as tart as the common Eureka lemon. Meyer Lemons make a versatile marmalade that can be used in a variety of recipes.

Why Two Flavors?

Everyone has different taste buds. One of my marmalade fans loves the added vanilla bean and vanilla extract. Another follower prefers the original. So I made both. Since Aunt Becky’s Meyer Lemon and Meyer Lemon Vanilla Bean Marmalades were so popular last year (sold out by mid-summer), I doubled my Meyer Lemon order. But don’t wait too long. Once it’s gone, you’ll have to wait another year for the next harvest.

How Can I Order?

If you live in the Portland, OR area, you can email auntbeckys at and we’ll coordinate a meeting place. If you live further or want your marmalade shipped, check out Aunt Becky’s Etsy page for ordering.
