Also known as the Cedro lemon, Amalfi lemons are considered some of the best in the world. They are from the picturesque town of Sorrento, in the southern sun kissed coast of Italy. With one of the richest citrus varieties from its high count of acid absorbency, the Amalfi lemon is significantly larger than the lemons you may find in the supermarket, they have a much sweeter, fragrant peel that you can actually eat raw! In fact these lemons are mainly used for their thick pith and extremely fragrant zest as they do not produce a large amount of juice. Commonly used for Marmalades, candied fruit and Italy’s famous liqueur; Limoncello.
Fun fact: Lemons were once so rare that kings presented them as gifts to one another.
