Tip: Keep Lemon Wedges in the Freezer

By it's.only.me 168 254

I wash and dry fresh lemons. Cut them into wedges and de-seed them. Toss them into a freezer proof bag or container.

Whenever I need a lemon in my drink, I add the frozen wedges. No need to thaw, use them frozen. If you need lemon for cooking/baking, take the wedges out of freezer and let thaw a bit.

Tip: Store Lemons in Sand

By katesnanna 12 36

Fresh lemons can be stored long term by packing in sand. Just make sure no two lemons are touching.

    Source: Did this when we lived in South Australia. Can't remember where we heard it.

    I have my best results keeping lemons fresh (even halved) by wrapping first in good paper toweling, and then in wax paper, and keeping them in my fruit bin.
