“Fresh” Lemon Juice All Year Long

“Fresh” Lemon Juice All Year Long

Want Your Lemons to Last All Year Long?

I love to have “fresh” lemon juice all year long. I use it for my homemade salad dressing to flavor my water, and when I get sick, I will boil water and add lemon and honey to soothe my throat.

I started freezing freshly squeezed lemon juice over ten years ago when my Aunt Sara let me pick lemons from her tree.

That’s when I knew that I wanted my own Lemon Tree!

One day, Superman took the day off, and we spent the day together. He wanted to pamper me, so he took me to get my nails done, and then we drove to The Home Depot, where we picked out a Lemon Tree together. It was OUR tree.

I love that tree. It is so meaningful to me. And, a bonus, our new house came with a flourishing lemon tree!

Now, I take my lemons, peel, juice, and freeze for later.
