Somewhere in this blog I’ve talked about the goodness of lemons – well I’m pretty sure I have.

You see, to me lemons are the bomb!  They just ooze goodness literally and figuratively.  So today’s blog is all about the lemon.  AND at the end is a quick video with a damn great tip.

Let’s start with what lemons are full of:

  • vitamin C, citric acid,
  • flavonoids,
  • B-complex vitamins,
  • calcium,
  • copper,
  • iron,
  • magnesium,
  • phosphorus,
  • potassium,
  • fiber.

Bet you didn’t know about the iron!!!

Did you know – Lemons contain more potassium than apples or grapes.

So here’s the rub – most of all this goodness is found in the skin and pith, both parts of the lemon we generally don’t use.  So you really should be eating all of it.  You probably already know that the zest of the lemon gives a much more lemon flavour in your cooking tha just the juice – so now we come to the video below.  This is how you can combine all of the goodness and the flavour in one go.
