All About Lemons

I love fruit and I want to write again and again about the benefit of fruit related with health. Now we talk about lemon. I thought all of us knew very well about this fruit. We can easily found this fruit around us. We may use this fruit as a healthy drink or we mix this with other fruit. Sometimes we put it in the fridge and always ready in the kitchen. My mother also uses lemon for emergency things, because this fruit contain a lot of benefits. Lemon just not only used for drink but we can use this fruit for other purposes. I’ll explain below. So keep on reading……..

Lime (Citrus aurantifolia Swingle) is a herbaceous plant with many branches. This plant is widely grown in the yard and garden. The height of lemon tree is can be reach six feet. With the oval leaves and it has a flower with white color and star-shaped. With a woody stem and usually produce fruit after 2.5 years. The fruit shaped is round with a smooth surface, thin-skinned, with yellow color when it's old. Many people believe that this plant come from the northern region of India, which borders with Myanmar, or in northern Malaysia. But there's also say that the lemon was originally came from the islands in Southeast Asia. Whereas in Europe and the United States commonly called to as lime, sour lime. Other country also called lemon with other name but it has the same meaning, like: Lime (UK), Lima (Spain). Dutch people, especially those living in big cities like Amsterdam, Den Haag, and Rotterdam recognize the benefits of orange juice. Even in the U.S., the use of lime is also beginning to be recognized. Other good news is come from Ohio State Biotechnology Center, Columbus (USA) as a laboratory which is diligently researching lemon.

According to research, lemon has vitamin C levels higher than other oranges, it might come from the sour taste. But I’ll explain more about the substance inside lemon. Lemon contains useful chemical substance, like: glycosides , essential oils (lemon camphor, sitral, aktilaldehid, kadinen, linali-lasetat, nnildehid, felandren, Gerani-lasetat,) resin, amino acids (tryptophan, lysine), sulfur, iron, citric acid, phosphorus, fat, calcium, vitamins B1 and vitamin C.

Some diseases can be treated using lime, such as: tonsils, malaria, constipation, shortness of breath, influenza, cough, fever, constipation, delayed menses, dysentery, stomach pains, stomach nausea, fatigue, body odor, facial wrinkles, acne, headache or vertigo, hoarseness, increase appetite, prevent hair loss, dandruff, overweight, nosebleeds, and inflammation of the nose. Sour taste inside lemon could help in clearing the nicotine contained in the teeth and mouth of people who like smoking.

From some recent researches shows that orange juice is also benefit to prevent recurrence of kidney stones, especially idiopathic calcium kidney stones. According to the report, consumption of lime helps to prevent kidney stones. Lemon contains citric high, while many patients with kidney stones have lower levels of citrate. The citrate substance of local lemon (round lemon) is about 10 times greater than other oranges and six times higher than sweet orange.

I am not a good chef. But I am glad to share the recipes below. I hope this could be a good alternative for us. Something fresh and I believe this is good to overcome our thirsty, especially in a "hot" day I guess.

"Lemon ice with cucumber"


We can make this drink on a hot day. I believe this drink useful for our health.

Ingredients:

- 150 grams of cucumber, seeds removed, shredded lengthwise
- 250 ml of water
- 100 grams granulated sugar
- 25 grams brown sugar
- 3 sticks cinnamon
- 3 pieces of lemons, squeeze and take 25 ml of lemon water
- 120 grams of crushed ice

Directions:


1. Boil water, sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon until it blend well
2. Enter a cucumber. Stir well. Remove and let it until cool. Add the lemon juice. Stir well.
3. Serve with crushed ice.

"Lemon Sorbet"

Sorbet is a coarse-textured ice cream, like crystal grains. There's good idea to make a refreshing sorbet by using lemon.

Ingredients:

- 450 ml water
- 175 gr sugar
- 100 ml lime juice
- 1-2 drops of green dye
- 2 egg whites

Directions:

  1. Combine water and sugar in a pan, cook water with medium heat until boiling. Add the lemon juice and green dye, cover the pan, leave with low heat for 5 minutes, remove and let it cool.
  2. Pour a mixture of water, sugar, and lemon juice in a container, cover with plastic sticky, and enter into the freezer for 1-3 hours until frozen (almost solid on the edges, but the center is still soft).
  3. Remove from the freezer, beat with a mixer or blender until smooth. Put it back into the freezer, let it there until it almost frozen, and then shake again. Repeat 2-3 times and put it back in the freezer.
  4. Beat egg whites until fluffy. In the last shuffle, enter the whipped egg whites into the lemon sorbet. Beat with low speed until this dough is smooth, freeze back in the freezer.

I generally have a bottle of lemon and sometimes lime juice in the refrigerator. These are concentrated so may need to be diluted for some purposes. I use lemon juice mostly to flavor fish. For some reason, restaurants do not seem to serve lemon with fish unless I ask for it. It can be added to tea or even water.Lime juice I keep to sometimes make Lime-aid.I vote this hub up and useful.

We have yellow lemons and green limes (2 different fruits) in the grocery stores available year round. The key limes are much smaller than the regular limes and people use them for making key lime pies (as well as other things).

When my parents lived in McAllen, Texas they always planted fruit trees in their back yard. It was nice to be able to walk out and pick grapefruit, oranges, lemons, etc. for use anytime one wanted some.

Have you ever heard of a Ponderosa lemon? It is HUGE! It grows much larger than a normal grapefruit. I remember seeing some of those in McAllen years ago. I think that they were grown as more of a novelty item. We do not see them in grocery stores.

Interesting hub, Prasetio, as always. Votes coming your way!

A great and informative hub. We have four seasons lemon trees in our backyard and we have so many lemons throughout the year that sometimes we don't even know what to do about them. I didn't know that you could lemon juice on calluses, I'll have to try this.. Most of the time I use lemon juice to cure a sore throat: I mix with a lemon juice, a teaspoon of honey and some hot water, then drink this 3 times daily.
