Lemon aspen juice can be used successfully in most recipes where lemons and limes are called for. The flavour is extremely strong and Lemon aspen works best in dressings, marinades and dishes where it can be added at the last minute. Note the Helpful hint above and do not attempt to extend the flavour with other citrus as it kills the flavour dramatically.

Lemon aspen works well with Lemon myrtle sprinkle, Mintbush marinade, Fruit spice, lemongrass and ginger and fruits such as raspberry, mango and rhubarb.
