Lemon is one of the popular fruits used for making pickle and keeping the digestive system healthy. Ready-made varieties of lemon pickle have oil but traditional pickle of north India does not contain any oil. Indian lemons usually have thin fluid, whereas the lemon available are quite thick-skinned. Lemon pickle was always made with leftover peels after making lemonade. The yellow zest with pith is the most valuable though it needs more acids and longer time to soften.
