When Life Gives You Beautiful Lemons

Make lemon cubes  in ice cube trays. Aren't these the most beautiful lemons? I could not pass them up in the store.  And, at $2.99 for a 2 pound bag it would have been so foolish. That price is a lot better than 2 lemons for $1.00!!!

 


A lot of the recipes that I have been looking at lately ask for fresh squeezed lemon juice. And, I like the added flavor it gives to the food.  Tonight I will be having white fish baked in white wine, mushrooms, green onions, salt and pepper and a splash of lemon juice. No recipe, just fixing as I go.  At least that is what I think I will do.



I have had this juicer for many years. It isn't something that I use often. But, it sure is nice to have  when I want to make fresh squeezed orange juice for breakfast which is something I like to do when I can get nice "juice oranges". It is a nice size juicer and it does a great job.


There is a little more than 1  1/2 cups pure lemon juice. And, no seeds because they are in the strainer at the top of the juicer.


And, now I will have 16 cubes (2 in another tray) that are approximately 2 tablespoons each.  When they are frozen I will take them out of the trays and put them in a freezer bag. They will be ready whenever I need lemon juice. How great is that?

 
Even though I have an automatic ice maker in my freezer, I have kept the trays for this sort of thing. Every once in a while I use them for something and it reminds me why I kept them!

Hope you are having a Sunshiny Day. The lemons make me think of sunshine.
