Cultivated and used in food and ritual for thousands of years, lemons are very frequently simply peeled and consumed, with the peels being discarded. The peel, however, is actually quite edible and safe to eat. Indeed, it makes a fantastic addition to the kitchen, and has been found mixed with melted butter, served over fish or in flavoring pies, cakes and other such confections. Though it can provide quite a bitter taste if too much is added, in smaller amounts it provides a pleasant, citrusy taste to a wide array of dishes.
