Sue Joy joined Mike to share some lemon and poppy seed cake and lemon cookie recipes.

Citrus fruits are packed with flavour and have many health benefits, like boosting immunity and fighting cancer. They are usually thought of as a good source of vitamin C but they also contain potassium, folate, calcium, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, phosphorus, magnesium, copper and many phytochemicals.

“Lemons are my favourite citrus as they support the immune system, aid digestion, balance ph levels, cleanse the urinary tact, detoxify the liver and the antioxidant properties help combat free radicals.”

There are so many ways to enjoy citrus fruit. You can use the juice to make drinks or flavour meals, the pulp can be used in marmalade, jams or smoothies, the zest can be used as a flavouring in cooking and as a garnish, the oil extracted from the rind of citrus fruit can be used to make essential oils that can be placed in a diffuser to uplift you, help with congestion, and purify the air.
