Lemons, lemons, lemons

When life brings you lemons . . . rejoice!!

We are lucky enough to be blessed with a healthy lemon tree on our property, along with limes and sour oranges.  We love cooking with them, but there are so many other uses for lemons!  Since I have an overabundance of sour oranges, I plan on experimenting to see if they are as effective as lemons.

Did you know that lemons can be frozen whole?  Place whole lemons in a bag to keep them all in one place.  Thaw them out when you are ready to use them. The juice will taste fresh, however, the texture of the lemon will be soggy.

Jillee of One Good Thing, one of my very favorite blogs, has written numerous posts on the many uses of lemons.  Her latest post is all about the health benefits of lemons, which also includes links to past posts on other uses for lemons.  Check out the rest of her blog while you are there . . . love her DIY recipes, a must for other frugalistas out there!
