Tips
  • Wrap cut fruit tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil before refrigerating, or store in airtight container.
  • To freeze lemons: (1) Wash and peel, then divide fruit into sections, removing all membranes and seeds; (2) In a saucepan, combine 2 3/4 cups sugar and 4 cups water, mix until the solution is clear, and bring to a boil; (3) Cool the syrup and pour over lemons; (4) Place lemons and syrup in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Cut up lemons may also be frozen "as is" in plastic bags; they will be mushy when thawed, but can be used for juice.
  • Freeze fresh lemon juice in ice cube trays and then transfer to heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
