If you use lemon juice on fish or in your tea, you may have cut lemons lying in your refrigerator. But often the lemon goes bad or gets too soft before you need it again. There is a simple method of preventing such waste, however. Freezing the lemon juice in a small ice cube tray not only preserves it for a long time, but can also be an interesting trick to use at parties. Lemon juice ice cubes can be used in iced tea, mineral water, diet cola or other drinks.
Things You'll Need
- Ice cube tray
Gather up some lemons that you want to use for juice.
Squeeze the juice out of the lemons. Note that lemons at room temperature tend to be easier to juice than cold lemons.
Pour the juice into an ice cube tray and freeze it.
Tips & Warnings
- Rather than sprinkle lemon onto fish, the lemon juice ice cubes can be rubbed onto the fish, or ice shavings can be sprinkled on it.
- The cubes can be used in iced tea, in the blender with frozen drinks or melted to use in liquid form.
- You can use ice trays that save the lemon juice into other shapes than cubes for even more fun.
