How to Freeze Lemon Juice

Today on Kitchen Basics 101 we will learn how to freeze lemon juice…freshly squeezed lemon juice

Sometimes a recipe only calls for one or two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.  What do you do with the leftover juice?

Or there’s a sale on lemons at the grocery store or farmer’s market and you come home with a whole basket of lemons. They’re sitting on your counter waiting for you to use them in a delicious recipe.  But what do you do if you don’t have the time to bake or use them right away?

Here’s an easy tip:   place one tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice into an ice cube tray.  Place the tray in the freezer until the cubes are frozen solid.

Remove the frozen cubes of freshly squeezed lemon juice and place in a freezer-safe plastic bag.  The frozen cubes will keep for months.  Don’t forget to label the bag.

Isn’t this the easiest thing ever! I love that my lemons don’t go to waste before I use them.
