Ever had the experience of your in-laws or neighbors or your CSA handing you a big box of lemons from their tree, and you're left wondering what the hell you're going to do with all these lemons. You might love lemons (who doesn't?) and want to take advantage of this bounty that's fallen into your lap, but you don't know where to start. You've never faced a pile of lemons this large before. You're flummoxed. Don't do what most people end up doing and use a few here and there, letting the rest rot on the counter because you had no clue what to do. Instead, read on and find out how to preserve, store, and make the most of the lemons life gives you. How to Store, Preserve, and Use Lemons Freeze them. The best way to quickly and easily store lemons long term is to freeze them whole. Some people advocate washing the lemons first, but if they're from a source you trust I don't find it necessary. Plus, washing lemons prior to freezing means that you have to fully dry them or else you get icy lemons. Just brush off any obvious dirt and toss 'em in the freezer. Whenever you need a lemon for anything, leave a frozen one on the counter to thaw. If you need one more quickly, simmer it in a covered pot until softened. The freezing actually ruptures the cell walls in the lemon, making them easier to juice. You'll get more lemon juice out of a frozen-then-thawed lemon than you would from a lemon that's never been frozen. Freeze the juice in ice cube trays. This is more work, but you get very convenient lemon juice ice cubes. To truly freeze lemon juice ice cubes, you need extremely cold temperatures. A standard freezer on your fridge might not cut it; they'll still freeze, but it'll be a little syrupy and gooey. For smaller jobs, this is a great citrus juicer. Dehydrate the rind. If you're going to juice the lemons and freeze the juice, don't waste the rind. Peel it with a vegetable peeler, then dehydrate the ribbons of lemon peel either in a food dehydrator, the oven on the lowest setting, or the warm sun. One the rinds have all dried completely—they should cleanly snap in half, rather than bend—store them as is or grind into a fine powder. Store in an air tight container. Lemon rind powder is excellent in salt and spice mixes, marinades, and salad dressings. Make lemon vinegar. Another option for all those rinds is homemade lemon vinegar, a powerful, multipurpose DIY cleaning solution. Make salted dried lemons. Boil about 12 cups of water with 2 cups of kosher salt dissolved in it. When it's boiling, drop your lemons in and boil them for 5 minutes. Remove them from the water and place on drying racks. If it's hot out, let them dry outside. If it's not, dry them on the lowest setting in your oven. … Continue reading "What to Do With That Box of Lemons"
