6 Ways to Store Lemons (WFMW Tip)

Lemon Tree, the song by Peter, Paul and Mary says,

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

(Click here for the YouTube rendition of Lemon Tree.)

Not true! The fruit of the poor lemon can be eaten and used. Tomorrow I’ll share 13 ways to use a lemon.

But Today I’ll share 6 ways you can store the lemons for future use.

  1. Put lemons in a jar in the refrigerator. Make sure the jar has a tight-fitting lid to prevent loss of moisture. They’ll keep for many weeks this way. (I couldn’t find out how many weeks.)
  2. Put the lemons in a plastic bag and put into the refrigerator. Sources say they’ll keep up to six weeks this way.
  3. Keep the lemons on the counter. They’ll keep juicy at most two weeks. The humidity and temperature will determine its length of freshness.
  4. Squeeze the lemons. Put the juice in ice trays. Once frozen, put the lemon cubes in a freezer bag.
  5. Make candied lemon peel. Put this into a sealed jar in the refrigerator. It will keep up to 6 months.
  6. Make preserved lemons. The lemons are marinated at least 3 weeks in their juice and salt. Preserved lemons are used in many Moroccan and Middle Eastern dishes.

Do you have another way that you store your lemons? Do tell!
