The lemon is one of the most incredible fruits, it has some much versatility and has so many different aspects in cooking. In Europe they treat lemon as if it’s there own invention but the origin is unknown. Though lemons are thought to have first grown in India and China, a study reports it to be hybrid fruit – go figure.
Upon my research I found out that lemons were known to the Hebrews who according to Josephus, pelted an errant high priest with them during a festival in the 90s BC. I wonder where and when the etrog passed their hands, another type of citrus but more ceremonial and filled with seeds and a heavy gauged yellow/white skin.
