Lemons are a widely cultivated citrus fruit that is prized for its sharp acidity and refreshing flavor. Squeeze a lemon juice on sweet or savory foods to add balance and plentiful aroma. The zest makes a great addition to salads, marinades, fish, and meats. Lemon juice can also be used as an organic disinfectant or cleaner.
Uses: Mix sugar, water, and lemon juice to make a refreshing lemonade. Squeeze over finished dishes such as grilled shrimp, baked salmon, or pad thai for a flavorful contrast. Add it as a garnish for fried foods or sashimi.
