Lemon flavour is the second most popular citrus flavour after orange flavor. Lemon oil has been used extensively to flavour beverages, especially carbonated beverages and to aromatize household products, imparting a clean, light citrus/lemon fragrance.

Lemons can add flavor and sparkle to almost any dish. One lemon has about 2 tablespoons of juice. Lemon can be squeezed over glazed carrots, broccoli, asparagus or greens to add a pop of flavor before serving.
