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 http://www.food52.com/recipes... and http://www.food52.com/recipes...
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.
