– This in Marathi is called Idlimbu???? Just recently when had been to Sibsagar Assam, I saw that almost all houses had a tree of ths plant along with Aamla. In their daily meals they take a large piece of this lemon either cut round or elongated. They eat it just like that or with salt. I know that it is a good source of Vit C, but eating such a big piece of lemon raw by everybody, without exception was new to me. Why so much vit C is consumed? How come every house has there qwn trees of lemon and Aamala? Can somebody from Asssam on the group explai? They also presented around a dozen of these lemons to each of us. I could make two bottles of pickeles of it.
– In California also I found one big slice of lemon being served with most dishes and often fixed on the top a glass of lemonade or juice, or a bowl of salad. Matter of in plenty and use.
– Even though it is acidic in nature, it is good for acidity and the body absorbs the vitamins better from the food, if it is mixed with the lemon juice.
