The mention of the lemon goes back to a tenth century Arabic treatise on farming, although it was probably first grown in Assam, India. Lemons are used to make lemonade and as a garnish for drinks. The average lemon contains approximately 3 tablespoons of juice.
Allowing the lemons to come to room temperature or briefly heating in a microwave before squeezing makes the juice easier to extract. Fish are marinated in lemon juice to neutralize the odour. Lemon Juice is often used to tenderize meats and is therefore used in all or most of the marinade recipes.
Lemon Juice is also sprinkled onto certain foods that tend to oxidise and turn brown after being sliced, such as apples, bananas and avocados. It acts as a short term preservative. There is a belief in Ayurvedic medicine that a cup of hot water with lemon juice in it tones and purifies the liver.
