AkA How to Make the Most of an Abundant Harvest!

I don't know about you, but for me lemon is THE citrus. It smells great, can be used for desserts or to brighten pasta dishes, for cleaning and deoderizing ... but you knew that already! But what do you do when you have way more lemons from your tree than you can reasonably use?


You make sliced lemon ice cubes!

Step 1: What You Need:

You really don't need much - there is a good chance you already have these lying around.

Clean lemons
A muffin tin or a mini loaf tin
Large zipper type bag
Knife and cutting board

I have not tried it with limes, but I see no reason why you could not make that substitution.
Do you think if you make the slices thick enough that they can be thawed and squeezed when using this method?
I have not tried that. I would say it is worth a shot, though you may want to try to freeze them in little sandwich or snack-size baggies to keep the flesh completely covered with water while it freezes.
Last time I tried to freeze sandwich bags, I opened the fridge before they were done and they fell out causing a flood . The best part was that we were in the middle of the hurricane and that was the most damage to our house lol
Oh no! Sounds like something I have done with Popsicle molds! Perhaps a muffin tin or mini loaf pan would help hold the bags steady while freezing?
PossIbly, or at least capture the water
