I love having fresh lemons on hand. They’re useful in so many recipes and for a wide variety of things. I use them in drinks, in meals, treats, and even cleaning. One lemon can go a long way – which meant that I was initially not using them as fast as they were going bad. I needed to find a way to preserve them so that money wasn’t being wasted and I didn’t have to make random trips to the store for lemons.
Do fresh lemons freeze well?
Yes! I’ve found that lemons are one of the easiest things to freeze – other than water! All kidding aside, you almost can’t go wrong when freezing fresh lemons.
How to freeze lemons.
So, I freeze them in a few different ways. In the end, it depends on what you want to use them to make.
If you just need a few slices or wedges:
1. Wash lemons
2. Cut them up into your chosen shape
3. Place in freezer bag
4. Place into freezer. Easy peasy!
Can I free a whole lemon?
Yes, absolutely! I freeze whole lemons, lemon slices, and lemon wedges. To use, I remove them from the freezer and place on the countertop a few hours before I want to use them. You could place them in the refrigerator if you want to give them more time to thaw and then remain chilled once they’ve thawed out.
