Use

Lemon juice and lemon peel from organic fruits are used for cooking and baking – our lemon tiramisu recipe or our recipe for original lemon curd serve as proof, for example. A few squirts of lemon juice spice up water. Lemon juice also prevents cut fruit from turning brown when sprinkled over it. Lemon peel oil is used to make liqueur. The well-known hot drink “Hot Lemon” – a mixture of hot water, lemon juice and, if necessary, sugar or honey – is a popular home remedy for colds. Lemon water is also said to be healthy, skin and hair can be cared for with lemon oil.

Lemons contain a lot of acid, so they stay fresh for a long time. The fruit will keep for several weeks at room temperature, and even longer in the fridge.
