Freeze your lemons in order to get the most of them.
The first thing you need to do is wash and clean the lemons. Dry it completely before you put it in a freezer bag. Store the bag in your freezer.
Frozen lemons are much easier to grate. In this way you can cut it instead of squeezing or slicing it. Remember, most of the nutrients in lemons are packed in their peel.
The worst mistake you can ever do is use just the juice of your lemon. By grinding your lemon, you can use every benefit it provides.
Cut off the ends of your frozen lemon, and grate it the same way as you do with your cheese.
In this way you will not slip and hurt yourself.
Once you are done, store your grated lemon in a ziplock bag. Use it to add a citrus hint to your dishes. Lemons will not only “season” your dishes, but also pack them with nutrients. Lemons pull out the flavor of every ingredient you use.
Your body will be more than grateful. Use frozen lemons regularly.
