Freezing Whole Lemons

Freezing Lemons or Limes

Weekend tip - Whole lemons and limes can be frozen. Just place them in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer.
When you need fresh lemon or lime juice, simply defrost the frozen lemons or limes in the microwave for a few seconds, (or submerge in cold water for about 15 minutes).
The texture of the lemon or lime will likely be mushy once thawed, but the juice will still be perfectly fine for use in your favorite recipes {tip brought to you by "Still Tasty.com"}.

Great tip, Linda. I buy lemons and if I don't use them quickly, they go bad.
