Best ways to store and use Lemons

What is the best storage for lemons? Can you freeze lemons? How long do lemons last in the fridge? We have answers to all of these food-saving questions and storage tips:

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store lemons.

While you can keep lemons on the countertop, storing them in the fridge will extend their shelf life.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4° C.

Can I Freeze It?

Freeze lemon juice and add it to drinks or in your cooking. If you freeze lemons whole with the peel on, it will be easy to zest them with a grater when you want a pop of flavour later on.

Fresher For Longer

Keep your lemons in the fridge. For cut lemons, store in an airtight container to prevent them from drying out. Use within a few days.

Use It Up

When juicing lemons, start by rolling the fruit on a hard surface with your hand. This makes the lemon easier to squeeze when cut so that you can get the most juice from it.

Did You Know?

Lemons act as a fridge deodorizer. Keep leftover lemons in a small bowl at the back of the top shelf of your fridge.

You can also use citrus fruit peels to infuse water with bright flavour.
