    15 Sweet and Savoury Lemon Recipes

    Where would cooking be without the lemon? We so take for granted the vibrantly coloured fruit sitting in the fruit bowl or the refrigerator probably without ever considering the importance and excitement it brings to our food. Where would our food be without the fragrant tang of the lemon. 

    The lemon is also healthy (adding a massive dose of Vitamin C to dishes) and is one of the most versatile fruits in the kitchen. Not only can it be used as an ingredient in our cooking, but it is also a natural cleanser both for the body (internally) and on countertops, appliances, sinks, pots and pans. What more can you ask for one simple fruit?
