This is What Happens When You Freeze Lemons

Frozen fruit bought from a store in probably my worst nightmare. No
matter when I eat it, it still tastes like freezing and freezing. If you
have no idea what I’m talking about when I say freezer taste – it’s
that taste that goes into any food that’s left in a fridge or freezer
too long – in other words, it tastes like refrigerator or freezer.

To
avoid this, I started freezing my own fruits and vegetables. It’s super
easy, and you can find some surprising health benefits (not to mention
knowing that all of those veg I’ve frozen are from a garden that I know
is organic).

Lemons, frozen, are probably the neatest thing there is. If you
quarter them, take out the seeds (and save those seeds and plant them so
you can have your own organic lemon trees growing inside) and freeze
them, you have your own lemon ice cubes that go in it. water, lemonade,
and even to cool down and add a new level of delight to your tea (I love
it in green tea or orange pekoe).

But you can also freeze WHOLE LEMONS. Yes, whole lemons are actually
pretty cool. You can grate the lemon (rind included) on just about
anything. In your morning yogurt, in stir-fries, on ice cream, on salad
and even in whiskey (or whiskey, whichever you like).

The great part of including lemon peel is that supposedly lemon peel
contains most of the vitamins and minerals in lemon. Which means you are
including more anti-cancer antioxidants than lemons contain. An added
benefit is (clearly) that you can add skin to just about anything and
know that you are not only chic, but also healthy.

Lemons have also been linked to other health benefits along with high
amounts of vitamin C and are found to be a good source of folate.

You can also use lemon zest to clean wooden furniture.
