We are getting addicted to canning things around here.  When I saw these Meyer lemons at Greene Grape Provisions I decided to work them into a jam with some of our abundance of apples.  I love planning food around what looks good at the market.  We used this recipe from the Food in Jars blog and added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and the seeds from one vanilla bean to the cooking apples.  (I like to keep the split bean in there too).  The resulting jam is very honey/lemon flavored.  It is a bit odd on a PB&J sandwich, but I just put some on toast with blue cheese and avocado and it was delicious.  It would be great with cheese and crackers or stirred into a hot drink as the weather gets chilly.
