How To Freeze Lemons
Freezing lemons is a great way to avoid waste… and ensure that you always have lemons on hand when you need them.
Tips For Freezing Lemons
- To freeze lemons whole (with the skin on), give them a good wash and them dry them off. Place them into a sealable plastic bag and remove as much air as possible before sealing.
- To freeze lemons with the zest removed, wrap the lemons in foil and then proceed as per the instructions above.
- You can freeze lemon juice in ice-cube trays.
- Defrost lemons by placing on the kitchen bench and slowly allowing them to come to room temperature. Alternatively, place the sealed bag into a sink or bowl of warm water and allow to defrost (in about 15 minutes).
