Etrog cake

Is it safe to make anything edible with etrog? My sister-in-law offered to make me a cake because I'm very pregnant, but I've heard the pesticide levels are off the charts.

    I've made esrog jam and liquer and I have a friend who makes the liquer every year. Never heard if the pestcides but I suppose it makes sense they'd use a lot so the zest might be an issue.

      Search the board, you'll find arguments both ways. As always try to find a source you trust and go with it.
