Nobody wants to drive a lemon, but there are countless reasons for cooking with this versatile fruit. Lemon juice, rind and peel can be used in a variety of food and drink recipes including marmalade and lemon meringue pie, and the leaves make a refreshing tea. Lemon juice helps bring out the flavor of seafood. We love lemons as a garnish with iced tea in the summer.

How to Select

Look for lemons that are thin-skinned, heavy for their size and have a peel with a finely grained texture. The color should be fully yellow.

How to Prepare

Wash before cutting.

How to Store

Lemons will stay fresh for about one week if stored at room temperature away from sunlight. If you will not be using them within a week, store them in your refrigerator's crisper, where they will keep for about a month.
