Lemons are citrus fruit from the tree Citrus limon. They are grown primarily for their juice, though the pulp and rind are also used, primarily in cooking or mixology. Lemon juice contains about 5% citric acid, which gives lemons a sour taste.
Lemon zest, when used as an ingredient, refers to shavings of the thin yellow outer skin of the lemon.
The zest contains strong smelling oils which are used to flavor many baked goods. One can remove the zest from a lemon by using a small-holed grater, a microplane, or by carefully cutting the zest with a knife. Ideally, none of the white pith should be included with the zest. You should also scrub and wash the outer skin first to remove any remaining pesticide.
