Lemon (CA) - Each
"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!"
Lemons are an excellent source of fiber to stimulate the digestive tract and vitamin C to strengthen the immune system, boost collagen production within the skin, and reduce inflammation. The fruits are also a good source of potassium, copper, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, and iron. In addition to vitamins and minerals, Lemons have been used in traditional medicines as a natural diuretic, bleaching agent, and as a protective medicine against some infections and diseases such as scurvy.
Lemons are versatile fruits utilized as a flavoring in both raw and cooked, sweet and savory applications. The fruits can be sliced and used as an edible garnish with roasted meats, tacos, or wedged on the side of beverages, and the slices can be squeezed as a finishing element. Lemons can also be juiced and used to cut through rich flavors in salad dressings, dips, marinades, and sauces, or it can be used to brighten soups, whipped cream, and rich, cheesy pasta dishes. Beyond savory preparations, Lemons are used as a flavoring for baked goods, including pies, cakes, muffins, and tarts, or the juice is mixed into puddings, icings, sherbet, bars, marmalades, and curds. It is important to note that Lemon juice can be found in many forms, utilized fresh, thawed from frozen, or blended with other ingredients from concentrate and cans. In addition to the juice, the peel can be zested for cookies, salads, grain bowls, or meats, or it can be sliced and candied as a sweet dessert. Lemon zest and juice are also used to accent cocktails, lemonades, sparkling waters, and other beverages. In African and Middle Eastern countries, Lemons are preserved in salt and are eaten as a sweet and sour condiment. Lemons pair well with aromatics such as garlic, onions, and capers, cheeses such as parmesan, mozzarella, and gruyere, potatoes, other fruits such as nectarines, peaches, and pears, herbs such as parsley, mint, rosemary, and thyme, vanilla, and meats such poultry, turkey, and fish.
Whole, unwashed Lemons will keep for a couple of days at room temperature and 1 to 2 weeks when stored in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
