    LEMON DESCRIPTION

    Lemon is a citrus fruit also known as Citrus limon or Limon.

    The Lemon tree may grow up to 16 feet tall and can bear both flowers and fruit at the same time. The Lemon is a versatile citrus fruit, a natural medicine that contains high amounts of vitamin C, which helps improve resistance to infections, particularly colds and flu. This fruit also has bioflavonoids that strengthen the inner lining of blood vessels, especially veins and capillaries, and help prevent varicose veins and easy bruising. Even though Lemon has a high alkaline effect it can help with the symptoms of rheumatism where acidity is a factor.

    The Lemon's essential oil is obtained from the peel of the fruit. Most of the Lemon oil sold commercially originates in either Sicily or California, the principal growing areas for this citrus fruit. Look for Lemon oil that has been cold pressed, since it is generally of the highest quality. Interestingly, it takes approximately 200 pounds of lemon peel - or 1,500 lemons - are needed to produce a single pound. Interestingly, it takes 3,000 Lemons to produce one kilogram of Lemon Essential Oil.

    The Lemon's key constituents are limonene, gamma-terpinene, beta-pinene, alpha-pinene and sabinene. Research has shown that Lemon oil can kill meningococcus bacteria within 15 minutes, and typhoid bacilli in 1 hour. At the time of this writing, Limonene is being researched for its effectiveness in cancer prevention. The oil is antiseptic and antibacterial. Lemon oil may be particularly useful for skin and hair care and for the treatment of respiratory tract infections or fatigue. The oil has strong antiseptic and antibacterial effects, even when it is inhaled in aromatherapy regimens. Lemon's fragrance blends well with other citrus scents, Peppermint oil and Eucalyptus oil.

    LEMON USES, HEALTH BENEFITS, & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    BENEFITS

    Lemon is used to treat infections, fevers, bleeding gums, and is used as a general tonic for numerous chronic illnesses and overall health. Lemon juice works well in treating colds, flu, scarlet fever, and chest infections. It stimulates the appetite, acts as a tonic for the liver and pancreas, and eases stomach acidity, ulcers, arthritis, gout, and rheumatism. The whole fruit, especially the pith (high in bioflavonoids), is used to treat arteriosclerosis and circulatory problems such weak capillaries and varicose veins. Gargling the juice relieves sore throats, gingivitis, and canker sores. Externally, Lemon juice can be applied directly to acne, athlete’s foot, chilblains, stings, ringworm, sunburn and warts.

    Lemon oil can help reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, relieve digestive problems, soothe sore throats, and respiratory infections. The oil also can improve memory, strengthen nails, promote a sense of well-being, and cleanse the skin. Scientific studies also revealed that Lemon oil has antidepressant effects.

    One of the most common fruit trees. Both savory and sweet dishes benefit from the tangy, refreshing flavor of lemons. The zest, the juice, and the fruit (sliced or quartered) can be used. Lemon juice poured over other fruits prevents discoloration of the flesh when exposed to air. The juice can be used as a substitute for vinegar if a lighter-flavored vinaigrette is desired.

    FUN FACTS ABOUT LEMONS

  • Lemonade is thought to be an Egyptian original-at least according to the earliest documentary evidence. Sources say that lemon juice mixed with sugar was sold around the year 1104 in a Jewish community in the Egyptian city of Cairo.

  • The ladies of Louis XIV's court used lemons to redden their lips.

  • Because of their high content of Vitamin C, the British Royal Navy loaded their ships’ stores with lemon to help sailors combat scurvy which is caused by Vitamin C deficiency.

  • The demand for lemons and their scurvy-preventing properties hit a peak during the California Gold Rush of 1849. Miners were willing to pay huge sums for a single lemon. As a result, lemon trees were planted in abundance throughout California. Although early U.S. lemon production centered in Florida, California is now the lemon state, ranking No. 1 in lemon production. (Arizona is a distant second.) The fruit came to Sacramento with the 49ers, who relied on lemons for Vitamin C while mining. Soon after, California farmers adopted lemons as a crop.


  • CULINARY USES

    One of the most common fruit trees. Both savory and sweet dishes benefit from the tangy, refreshing flavor of lemons. The zest, the juice, and the fruit (sliced or quartered) can be used. Lemon juice poured over other fruits prevents discoloration of the flesh when exposed to air. The juice can be used as a substitute for vinegar if a lighter-flavored vinaigrette is desired.


    LEMON EQUIVALENTS

    1 medium-size lemon equals approximately 1 tablespoon of lemon zest.
    1 medium-size lemon equals 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.
    NUTRITION FACTS

    One (1) cup of lemon juice has only 61 calories (that is less than 4 calories per tablespoon) and no fat.
    The juice is 5 to 6 percent citric acid.
    Lemons are extremely high in Vitamin C and also are a good source for foliate and potassium.


    PURCHASING & STORING LEMONS

  • Choose smooth-skinned lemons that are heavy for their size. The skin should have a fine grain and bright yellow color. (Streaks of green on the skin of the lemon usually indicate more acidity.)

  • Avoid lemons that feel soft or spongy with skin that looks or feels wrinkled, bumpy, rough or hard. Coarse, thick-skinned and light lemons have less juice.

  • Lemons can be kept indoors at room temperature for about a week before they tend to become soft or wrinkled. For longer storage, store lemons in the refrigerator or freeze.
    • USING FROZEN LEMONS

    • Freezing Whole Lemons: The next time you see lemons or limes on sale at your local grocery or produce store, buy an extra amount of lemons and freeze them whole. First wash the skins well and then dry. Place the whole lemons in a freezer bag and store in your refrigerator.
    • Zesting the frozen lemon: Grate the zest off the lemon while still frozen.
    • Juicing the frozen lemon: Place lemon in the microwave for a few second (or submerge in cold water for approximately 15 minutes). After defrosting, the lemon will be softer (or more mushy) and much easier to juice.
    • Freezing lemon juice: Instead of keeping whole lemons, store the juice. Squeeze lemons, pour juice into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once they're solid, transfer the lemon cubes into a freezer bag, where they will keep for several months. Each cube equals the juice of one medium lemon.
    PRESERVED LEMONS

    Lemons also can be preserved whole or quartered with salt. Preserved lemons are popular in Middle Eastern and Moroccan recipes. Following are three recipes for preserved lemons. Note: I have not tried these recipes myself.


    MOROCCAN PRESERVED LEMONS RECIPE

    Ingredients
    Instructions

    Cut the lemons in half lengthwise and cut each half into quarters. Remove the visible pits and generously coat the lemon pieces in kosher salt. Set on a pastry rack to drain. Set aside for 24 hours.

    Pat the lemon pieces with a clean kitchen towel and arrange in layers in a sterilized glass jar. Lightly sprinkle each layer with a little paprika, crushed pepper and olive oil. Add the garlic clove and a bay leaf at every third level and the cinnamon stick in the middle. Cover the lemons with a combination of 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 vegetable oil. Seal and refrigerate. In about 3 weeks, the pickled lemons will be soft, mellow, and ready to eat.

    Keeps for 6 weeks after marinating. Serve in tangine dishes, grilled fish and curry dishes.



    PRESERVED LEMONS RECIPE

    Ingredients
    Instructions

    If you wish to soften the peel, soak lemons in lukewarm water for 3 days, changing water daily.

    Quarter the lemons from the top to within 1/2 inch of the bottom; sprinkle salt on the exposed flesh and reshape fruit. Place 1 tablespoon salt on the bottom of a sterilized one-pint mason jar. Pack in the lemons and push them down, adding more salt and the optional spices between the layers. Press the lemons down to release their juices and to make room for the remaining lemons. If the juice released from the squashed fruit does not cover them, add freshly squeezed lemon juice to cover. Leave some air space before sealing the jar. Let the lemons ripen in a warm place for 1 month, shaking the jar everyday to distribute the salt and juice.

    To use, rinse the lemons (or quarters) as needed under running water, removing and discarding the pulp - use peel. There is no need to refrigerate after opening. Preserved lemons will keep up to a year and the pickling juice can be used 2 or 3 times over the course of a year.



    7-DAY PRESERVED LEMONS RECIPE

    Ingredients
    Instructions

    Scrub the lemons and dry well. Cut each into 8 wedges. Toss them with the salt and place in a 1/2-pint glass jar with a glass or plastic-coated lid. Pour in the lemon juice. Close the jar tightly and let the lemons ripen at room temperature for 7 days, shaking the jar each day to distribute the salt and juice. To store, add olive oil to cover and refrigerate for up to 6 months.


    JUICING LEMON TIPS

  • Squeeze your own lemon juice! - Bottled lemon juice should be substituted only if fresh lemons are not available.
  • View Types of Citrus Juicers
    and purchase one, if desired.
  • view different types of citrus juicers and to purchase one (if you desire).
  • Room-temperature lemons, limes and oranges will yield more juice than those that are refrigerated.
  • Microwaving the fruit for 15 to 20 seconds before squeezing will help extract more juice. Do not overdo it. You don't want to boil the juice.
  • Use your palm to roll lemons, limes, or oranges around on the countertop a few times before squeezing.
  • If just a few drops of juice are needed, pierce the skin with a toothpick and squeeze out what you need. To store it, reinsert the toothpick, put the lemon or lime into a plastic bag, and refrigerate.
  • Store fresh lemon juice in the refrigerator for a week or so. If I have a large amount of juice to store, put the juice in ice cube trays and freeze for later use.
  • When in a hurry, try cutting the lemon in half, and then cup one hand under the lemon as squeeze the lemon with the other hand. The cupped hand is to catch the seeds.

  • LEMON ZESTING TIPS

  • Zest is the outer colored portion of the citrus peel. Freshly-grated orange, lime or lemon zest packs a flavor wallop no bottles dried zest can match. When removing the skin from lemons or other citrus fruits, be sure to take only the thin outer zest or colored portion. The white pith will give your dish a bitter under taste.
  • Use a citrus zester (available in the kitchen specialty shops) to obtain long, thin strands of citrus zest. A zester has five tiny cutting holes that create threadlike strips of peel.
  • Press firmly as you draw the zester down along the skin of the fruit. For continuous strips of zest, begin at one end of the fruit, and cut in a spiral around and down.
  • If you are using a lemon for zest and juice, grate the zest first and then squeeze the juice.
  • When grating lemon peel, use this fast and easy trick. Cover the zest side of your grater with plastic wrap and grate the lemon over the plastic wrap (remember do not grate the bitter white pith that is under the peel). Most of the zest will remain on the plastic wrap and thus can't stick in the holes of the grater. Just pull the plastic wrap off and shake the zest onto a plate.
  • A traditional zester makes long, thin strands of zest, or a knife. Be sure to finely chop the strands with a knife. A tool for removing the zest of a lemon. A lemon zester allows one to remove the zest (and only the zest) in long strips. A zester has tiny cutting holes that create threadlike strips of peel.
  • A Lemon Grater (there are many kinds) can be used to remove the zest. Use a fine grater to remove the peel. To zest just rub the lemon in one direction against the little blades. Turn the lemon as you go so you remove only the yellow part.
  • A Vegetable Peeler or Knife may be used if you do not have a zester or grater, use a vegetable peeler or a small, sharp knife. Carefully peel off a strip of the lemon skin, working top to bottom. Peel only the topmost layers of the skin. If there is any white showing on the underside (the pith), you have peeled too deep.



  • OLD FASHIONED SOUTHERN LEMONADE RECIPE

    Ingredients
      Simple Syrup (See Syrup Recipe) 6 Lemons, Freshly Squeezed Juice (Approximately 1 Cup Juice)
      4 cups Cold Water (More or less may be used to taste)

    Instructions

    Prepare Simple Syrup in advance and refrigerate until ready to use.
    In a large pitcher, combine freshly-squeezed lemon juice and cold Simple Syrup.

    Taste to make sure the lemonade is not too sweet for your taste, if so add additional cold water.
    Refrigerate approximately 50 to 60 minutes before servings.
    Serve in tall glasses over ice.


    Note: To prevent your ice from watering down your lemonade as it melts is to freeze some lemonade in your ice trays and use them to keep your drinks ice cold. It works great!

    BASIC SIMPLE SYRUP RECIPE

    Ingredients
      1 cup Granulated Sugar (Can be reduced to 3/4 cup, if desired)
      1 cup Water

    Instructions

    In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and water. Boil for 5 minutes, without stirring. Remove from heat and let cool before using. Store in the refrigerator in an covered container.

  • LEMON DOSAGE INFORMATION

    SUPPLEMENT FORMS

    Lemon is a fruit that comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. Lemon peel is the familiar cut and dried yellow outer layer of the lemon. Although orange peel is more commonly prescribed in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, lemon peel also stimulates the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices to digest food, and helps provide vitamin C. Lemon peel is added to scores of herbal teas and herbal formulas for aroma and taste enhancement. Lemon contains Limonene and at least 45 other antioxidant flavonoids, pectin, vitamin C. Dried peel is often used for many purposes. Typical preparations include teas or aqueous extracts for flavor. Many people eat lemon peel or add it to teas in order to enhance flavor and impart its delicious, citrusy aroma.

    For best results, read and follow product label directions.

    DRIED LEMON PEEL

    Dried lemon peel is made from just the "zest" portion of the lemon which is removed and dried. You can purchase this product from our online merchants (see Products for our vendors). The dehydrated zests are three times stronger than fresh zest so use 1 teaspoon per tablespoon called for in your recipe. This product is typically used in baked goods like muffins, cakes and cheesecakes.

    Substitute for Dried Lemon Peel: 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Extract can be substituted for 1 teaspoon dried lemon peel.

    Equivalents:
      1 teaspoon dried Lemon Peel equals the grated peel of 1 medium lemon.
      1 teaspoon dried Lemon Peel equals 1 to 2 teaspoons Fresh Lemon Peel.
      1 teaspoon dried Lemon Peel equals 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Extract.
    LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL

    For use in skin formulations, always dilute Lemon essential oil with an appropriate carrier. Do not use oil internally. Citrus oils are among the least durable essential oils. Always keep them in a small dark-colored bottle in a cool place. Stored correctly, the essential oil will stay fresh for about a year and a half.





    LEMON SAFETY, CAUTIONS, & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    There are no known safety issues or interactions associated with Lemon.

    However, eating too much of the fruit can begin to eat away the enamel on your teeth.

    Take care when using Lemon essential oil. When the skin is exposed to intense sunlight, Lemon oil has been known to cause pigment spots. Therefore, do not use Lemon essential oil or toiletries containing citrus essential oils or citrus perfumes within 6 hours of exposure to the sun. As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
