Lemon adds zest to many recipes. Seafood and fish, salads or desserts are but a few dishes which take on new interest and flavor appeal with the addition of a touch of lemon. An average lemon should produce approximately V4 cup juice and IVa teaspoons grated rind. Lemon juice concentrates vary in strength, so check label for equivalents. Use half as much dried lemon rind when substituting for fresh. A few drops of lemon extract can give you somewhat the same flavor as grated rind or peel. by Pam Howard
