The Italian Pantry: Lemon

Lemon is a staple in the Italian pantry.

What is it used for? We always serve lemon wedges with our vegetables like broccoli or broccoli rabe. We also make a lemony oregano baked chicken, and we bake fish with lemon. Some fresh lemon peel is served with espresso. Lemon is also used in some baking, as in cookies, and for lemon ice.
