All About

Lemons

Lemons are one of a cook's most valuable ingredients, working in both sweet and savory dishes. Choose lemons with taut, thin skin; the fruit should give slightly when pressed. Stock up -- lemons keep for two to three weeks in a plastic bag in the fridge --and you'll find yourself grabbing them for everything from cake to hummus to chicken.

recipe

Our recipe tester's grandmother Josephine Rege has been making her version of lemon angel pie for more than 60 years. We updated her recipe, and the result became an instant Martha (and test-kitchen) favorite. This recipe is one of our Better Basics: 10 New Takes on Family Favorites, see the others.
