Lemon season is winter, with a second , lesser crop in summer, but lemons are available year round. Lemons provide two kitchen treasures: their acid juice, important as an ingredient in hundreds of dishes both sweet and savoury and as an essential seasoning, and their rind, which provides intense lemon fragrance and flavour with little acidity. To Prepare: Lemons are sometimes waxed to prevent drying out. If using the rind, wash first. To obtain rind, use grader or micro plane. Grade it off being careful to take only the coloured layer and not the underlying white pith. To Store: Lemons will keep in good condition at mild room temperature for a week or more. For longer storage place in fridge crisper for up to 4 weeks.
