Long-Term Storage for Lemons and Limes


What to do when lemons or limes are on sale, or you've bought more than you need?
Don't pass up the sale, and definitely don't let them go bad.
Squeeze the juice into ice cube trays, freeze them, then pop the cubes into a zippie bag or freezer container labeled so you know which is which.
The next time you need a teaspoon, tablespoon or more of the juice, it will only take seconds to defrost and measure.
Works with orange and pineapple juice too!

I did this last year with our bounty from my grandmother and it worked great! It's so nice having citrus juice year round.

Thanks Tammy and Meg. And Hazel, thanks for the heads up. I've not yet had any go slimy, but good to know that it's a possibility. Also good to know that freezing the entire fruit works!
