Today while I was in Walmart, I noticed that lemons were marked down from $.50 each to $.25 each. Cool! Half price! I grabbed a few since I am out of fresh lemon juice at home.
Did you ever notice that many recipes that call for lemon juice only call for a tablespoon or two? I do not need it very often and do not like to leave lemon juice in the fridge for long periods of time. I started using fresh lemon juice in my recipes instead.
I buy lemons when they are on sale (as I did today). I squeeze them, put the juice into my ice-cube trays, and place them in the freezer. When they are completely frozen, I transfer them to a zipper bag. Whenever I need a little lemon juice, I take out what I need. When I run out, I start the process all over again. This way I almost always have fresh lemon juice in the house to use in my cooking.
What do you store in your freezer? I used to make my own baby food in ice-cube trays also, just like I do the lemon juice.
