Lemon is one of my most favorite of flavors! Until today I had never purchased or used Meyer lemons, in anything. I found these beauties while shopping at Costco. Into the cart, they went. I doubt that I will be able to use all of these, in time to prevent spoilage. When I unloaded the little container they were packaged in, unfortunately, one was already moldy.
I learned a while ago, that you can freeze lemons for future use. It is easy. Just wash and dry, cut in half and put in a freezer container or bag. When you need "fresh" lemon, let thaw or microwave for about 30 seconds (per half lemon) and you have a fresh lemon to juice. The rind holds up well and the "juicing" force does not break the fruit apart. You can bet, these delicious beauties will go into the freezer, instead of into the compost.
Got (stale) bread? Good. Here is a delicious and different way to use it up, prevent waste and be frugal in the process.
