So I am always trying to find ways to reduce my carbon footprint…and here I was using store-bought lemon juice (in a plastic bottle) that just didn’t taste like real lemons (and all these additional ingredients)…but whenever I would buy a lemon I would use half and the other half would sometimes just get forgotten…
So I decided to buy an entire bag of lemons (Costco-size) and juice ALL of them at the same time. I poured the lemon juice (after having tried to remove most of the seeds) into two ice-cube trays and froze them over night.
And now I have freshly pressed lemon juice whenever I need some, without the plastic waste, without the mystery ingredients, and without wasting another half of a lemon. Already used several lemon juice cubes in various dishes.
Small measuring cup with a little spout (for easier pouring)
Ice cube trays
1. Cut each lemon in half, before juicing. Collect the lemon juice into a small measuring cup.
2. Pour the lemon juice into the ice cube trays.
3. Freeze over night. Pop cubes out of the tray and store in airtight plastic container in the freezer.
4. Whenever you have a recipe that requires lemon juice, just defrost as many cubes as needed.
