The juice prevents cut fruit and veg from browning and can be used as a substitute to salt in dishes. The zest and peel contain pectin and can be used to help set jams and jellies. Grated zest can also be used to flavour cakes, biscuits, mousses, custards and sauces.
Roll a lemon between your hands for a couple of minutes before using to warm the fruit gently – you will be able to yield more juice.
Lemons can be kept in a cool room or the fridge for at least a week.
Our lemons are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
