Squeeze all the lemons until you having nothing but juice, get rid of all seeds. Pour the juice into clean ice cube trays and freeze cubes until solid. Store lemon cubes in a Ziploc freezer bag and now you have cubes to make a pitcher of fresh lemon aid. Place the lemon cubes in a pitcher and defrost, then add cold water and some sugar to taste.

My husband and I purchased a whole box of fresh lemons from a fruit vendor at a flea market and a friend told me about juicing the lemons and freezing the juice in ice cube trays. (04/16/2008)

You can also freeze the entire lemon. Once thawed they will become mushy, but the juice will be the same as that of a freshly cut lemon. I have a lemon tree in my garden that in the rainy season (in El Salvador from May to September) gives a generous crop by the hundreds every year. (04/17/2008)

It's yummy

Authentic Italian Lemon Ice

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup lemon juice (use juice of 2 lemons plus enough reconstituted juice to yield 1 cup)
  • Zest of 2 lemons, cut very fine
  • 2/3 cup sugar

Heat water and sugar to boiling. Simmer for 5 additional minutes. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice and zest. Cool to room temperature. Divide mixture evenly among three tubs. Freezer until firm. Shave; scoop into small cups and serve with a spoon or straw. You may wish to garnish with a small thin slice of lemon.

You can mix 4 cups of lemon juice with 4 cups of sugar and stir to blend the mixture. Then put in a plastic tub and keep in the freezer. You can scoop a tablespoon or two anytime (the mixture does not freeze hard, but stays soft because of the sugar) in a tall glass and add cold water to make yourself an instant lemonade or dilute a greater amount in a pitcher for a crowd.

Juice them, and freeze the juice in small plastic bottles. If you have an old "fake juice" container, they are perfect, as the juice will squirt out by drops. As with all freezing of liquids, just make sure they are not too full, and don't use glass. I've found this better to make homemade cordial with (just add water and sugar to suit your tastes) than ice cubes, as they often become "fridgey". (04/19/2008)

I take the zest off the outside of the lemon and freeze that, and then I juice the lemon and freeze the juice in ice cube trays. That way I'm making use of the zest and the juice. (04/19/2008)

I quarter them, place them (not touching) in a single layer on a cookie sheet. When frozen I drop them into a Ziploc bag. To thaw, I remove however many I need and either let them thaw at room temperature or let them soak in warm water. I do limes the same way. For years I've always had plenty of "fresh" lemon for fish and lime for my iced tea. (06/14/2009)
