Purchased unwaxed lemons to make my Christmas cakes and always use Delia's recipe but pack label shows wash before using as treated with Imazalil so do I simply run them under cold running water and dry with towel or should I drop them into warm water. Most fresh fruits show they need to be washed but no information is given as to how this is to be achieved.
What can I do with the lemons after removing outer peel because
I will have lots and pity can't be used for something.
Fresh cold water is best for washing most fruits that need it, but as citrus fruits have a firm skin you can use warm water.
For the remaining lemons you might like one of the following recipes…
Thick Lemon Tart
Double Lemon Drizzle Cake
Traditional Lemon Meringue Pie
