In making a lemon tart, do you use the rind and juice, or just the juice?

Depends on the recipe. Lots of great options either way.

I would not use the rind. The white portion can be quite bitter. Maybe a zest or the rind only if you are going to discard it.

jmburns, I guess you haven't tried Lazy Mary's lemon tart from dymnyno <a href="http://www.food52.com/recipes/1374_lazy_marys_lemon_tart" target="_blank">http://www.food52.com/recipes/1374_lazy_marys_lemon_tart</a> and <a href="http://www.food52.com/recipes/10200_lazy_marys_improved_lemon_tart" target="_blank">http://www.food52.com/recipes/10200_lazy_marys_improved_lemon_tart</a> Shaker lemon tarts are also truly delicious, and they also use the whole fruit.

I always add the zest (to my taste) as that has more flavor.

The recipe I've used includes both juice and zest.
