Looking for some lemon meringue pie?

If you are looking for some lemon meringue pie or just about anything else that uses lemons, be prepared to have to hunt it down as you might have a hard time finding it. You might want to get your wallet ready too as a shortage of lemons (and lemon juice) has pushed prices for the fresh fruit up by more than double.

Due to a combination or drought and frost in the primary lemon growing regions of southern Europe, California and Arizona lemon suppliers do not have adequate supplies and the first to feel the shortage seems to be the lemon juice producers.
