You should never, and I mean never, be presented with anything on a plate that is not edible. It is a primer in food preparation and presentation. In other words, eat the rind if you like it. I tend to squeeze the lemon on whatever it's presented with (schnitzel or fish). The main thing to remembre is that no matter what you do, you're doing the right thing.

If you want to eat it - rind and all, then do it ... if not, then don't! Geeze, it's not like your Mom has the Food Police out checking to make sure to ate every last edible on your plate so the people in some poor country won't die of starvation just because you didn't eat one bit of lemon rind.

Parsley - since someone mentioned it ... do with it as you wish. It is a digestive and helps to cleanse the breath of garlic and onion ... or so the old books say.

LOL. Happy New Year.
I've only seen it once or twice. Real parsley is cheap enough that it never made sense to use plastic!
