Lemons are versatile and can be added to a wide variety of dishes across almost every cuisine. Add juice or zest to soups, dips, mayonnaise and whipped cream. Cook whole lemon slices into marmalade or cook with eggs and butter into curd. Pack lemon slices in salt to preserve. Flavour cakes, breads or scones. Make scented sugar by rubbing lemon zest into sugared granules. Juice fresh lemons and combine with sugar and water to make lemonade, add to cocktails or freeze into granita. Mix with oil for a vinaigrette.
To store, fresh lemons are best kept refrigerated, however can be kept at room temperature.
