Long heralded as the pinnacle of all things citrusy is the small in stature yet mighty in flavor lemon. The lemon is a species of small evergreen tree native to Asia and one of its earliest recordings in history is that it was used to pelt someone at a festival in 90s BC. In ye olde timey pirate days, sailors discovered adding the acidic fruit to their regimen kept the scurvy away. But it’s not all pelting parties and scurvy abatement. The small sour fruit can be used in a variety of palate-pleasing ways! So pucker up buttercup and get ready for one tasty ride!
