I love the taste--tart and with just a touch of sugar added such a delicate sweetness. A slice or two of lemon changes a glass of water into a totally different drink. My friend Kath drinks quarts of lemon water every day. She slices up a couple of lemons and puts them in a clear glass jug full of water and leaves it on the counter.
Cooking with lemons covers every aspect of the culinary. Just think of fish and lemon, avoglimono soup, lemonade, lemon squares. Grated lemon rind enlivens everything. And I add lemon juice to many things--from soup to salad dressing. I wouldn't be without lemons--ever.
