This month’s Jihva for Ingredients, started by Indira of Mahanandi, features this citrus fruit – Lime/Lemon.

I am honoured to be able to host this event and I wish to thank Indira for this opportunity. I hope hosting this event brings me back to blogging. Smile

 

The lemon is used for culinary and non culinary uses throughout the world.The fruit is used primarily for its juice, though the pulp and rind (zest) are also used, in cooking and baking. Although lemons and limes may not be what you would choose for an afternoon snack, we consider them as powerhouses when we want to bring out the flavor of other foods. 

Though the fruit and its juice have a sour taste to it, lemon is actually a fantastic buffer in the body and can reduce hyperacidity in the stomach. Lemon juice and peels have an antiseptic effect and the leaves of the tree are used to reduce fever. In addition, lemons are rich in vitamin C which strengthens the immune system and acting as an antioxant, protects cells from radical damage.

While culinary uses of this fruit are one too many, it comes handy for many non culinary purposes as well. Checkout some wonderful uses of this fruit
