Tips for Using Lemons

By May 12, 2010Uncategorized
  • Lemons are often called for in recipes in the form of juice. They will produce more juice when warmer, so juice them when they are at room temperature or place them in a bowl of warm water for several minutes. Rolling them under the palm of your hand on a flat surface will also help to extract more juice.

  • Before use, wash the skin so that any dirt or bacteria residing on the surface will not be transferred to the fruit’s interior.
  • If your recipe calls for lemon or lime zest, make sure that you use fruit that is organically grown since most conventionally grown fruits will have pesticide residues on their skin.
