Lemons are an ingredient that we don’t use all that often, but would use more of if, say, we lived in California.
Sadly, for those of us in northern climes, citrus isn’t exactly local. But happily, there is a wide variety of dwarf citrus trees on the market that have us in mind. Because they grow in pots, they can move inside or out depending on the season, protecting them from the sub-freezing temperatures that would otherwise kill normal citrus. This means that even here in northeastern Ohio, we can have fresh lemons from our lemon tree (or lime, mandarin, and a variety of other options), even when it’s snowing out!
