Amalfi Lemon (Fresh Fruit)
Amalfi Lemon (Fresh Fruit)
Amalfi lemons are a variety of lemon that originated in the Amalfi Coast region of Italy. They are known for their large size, skin, and bright yellow colour. The lemon flesh is juicy and acidic, with a strong and distinctive aroma. Amalfi lemons are highly prized for their flavour and are used in a variety of culinary applications, including juices, desserts, sauces, and dressings. The skin of the Amalfi lemon also makes it a popular choice for candying.
Our Lemons are grown in an animal rescue farm called Aashan at Chakaan, Pune. The seeds of the lemons were originally imported from Italy and planted here about 10-15 yrs ago. Since then the farmer Heena has been growing these lemons and selling them to cover costs of the animal shelter.
How To Use
Amalfi lemons are versatile and can be used in many ways in cooking and baking. Some ways to use Amalfi lemons include:
- Juicing: The juice from Amalfi lemons is commonly used to add flavour to sauces, marinades, drinks, and other dishes.
