When Life Gives you (too many) Lemons

Make lemon ice cubes!

Here’s what you need:

YOU NEED:
lemons (duh!)
a sharp knife
a mesh strainer
an ice cube tray or two
a freezer safe container to store your cubes

Lemons, lemons…lemons,,,,,lemons_____lemons!!!! I love juicy lemons!!!

1. Squeeze your lemons.
Talk about a hand cramp!

2. Strain out the seeds over an ice cube tray.

3. Freeze.

4. Store in a freezer safe container.

I’m not sure this is the best storage method – I’d love to hear other opinions on this???

5. Drop ‘em in any drink to which you’d would normally add a lemon slice (iced tea, diet coke, sparkling water etc). OR let them melt & use for cooking/baking when lemons aren’t in season. YUM!

    Wow, are these from your very own lemon tree? (California is still the promised land except for cost of living, natural disasters, dreadful government, taxes… ;! ) Sooo Ggorgeous and so saucily colorful. I heart citrus…

    They’re from the next door neighbor’s tree! She had bags of them in her kitchen. I kept going over to fetch more & more.
