Description:This image depicts a stack of bright-yellow lemons, rich in vitamin C, and a terrific additive to a wide variety of foods such as fish and salads. This fruit also has a wide range of uses in many household activities.
When selecting lemons they should be firm and have a bright yellow color. Avoid soft, shriveled lemons with spots. The best lemons will be fine-textured and heavy for their size. Thin skinned fruit tends to have more juice, while fruit that has a greenish cast is likely to be more acidic. One medium lemon has about 3 tablespoons of juice and 3 tablespoons of grated peel.
