Preparation, Uses, & Tips
To extract more juice, lemons should be brought to room temperature or rolled under the palm of your hand on a flat surface before slicing. Sprinkle lemon juice on cut produce to prevent oxidation (browning.) Use in salad dressings or as a vinegar substitute, on seafood, in hot or cold water and tea, as garnish, and seasoning. Lemons can be used to make sorbet, marmalade, pudding, and cakes. In sauces, lemon zest, juice, or pieces give a refreshing flavor and make an attractive garnish.
