Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Mediterranean Theme Week.

Citrus fruits are part of Mediterranean cuisine. And Meyer lemons are available in many parts of California, the state where I live. Nosh This (San Francisco) offers a Meyer Lemon Salted Caramel with tiny bits of what I'm fairly sure are lemon rind. These bits of rind provided wonderful lemon taste and texture to these salt caramels enveloped in chocolate.

I'm very grateful to live in an area with a Mediterranean-like climate; I have rosemary, lavender, citrus and other edible wonders in my small yard. Thank you also to neighbors who have generously offered to share some of their Meyer lemons over the years.
