  1. Why did I never think to freeze the zest ?!? Great tip!

  2. WOW, I try not to get too jealous of other people, but to be able to have a lemon and/or lime trees in the back yard…I’m jealous. I live in PA and lemon trees just do not grow here. Oh the possibilities when you don’t have to pay the ridiculous price; they can be so expensive.

    I submitted a great grilling recipe: http://www.familybalancesheet.org/2010/07/grilled-garlic-lemon-shrimp.html

    Thanks for the linkup.

  3. Thank you for hosting. I shared my lemon pepper shrimp scampi. I don’t have it often due to the price of shrimp. It’s a treat.

  4. Great tips! Did you know that by just adding a slice of lemon to water at the dinner table helps in digestion? I love that tip:-)

  5. Thanks for hosting! and for reminding me about the lime ginger marmalade recipe that I linked up. I really need to make that again. YUM!

  6. Oh, I am envious of the lemon tree. That would be so awesome compared to our pines!
    Thanks for the recipes, can’t wait to try them. I even found some Meyer lemons at Walmart recently that I get to try for the first time!

  7. I was so happy to see this post in my email this morning! I absolutely LOVE baking and cooking with lemons. My friends always joke with me and say “did you add lemon to it” :) I submitted my Skinny Blueberry Lemon Muffins. They freezer perfectly too!

  8. Oh honey, Kansas City is hardly the frozen tundra. :)

  9. Perfect timing! I just harvested a ‘kings ransom’ of limes from our tree in Maui! I was thinking about dehydrating the zest, but freezing it seems like a better option for on the fly baking. Thanks for the post! =)

  2. [...] can freeze vegetables for side dishes later and freeze fruits for baking or for smoothies. Zest the lemons and other citrus and store the zest and juice separately in the freezer. So much better than bottled! Chop and [...]

  3. [...] not pretty. They were billed as “cosmetically challenged.” But, since I still have lots of zest from my dad’s last batch of lemons, I’m good. We’re going to juice all this and freeze it for lemonade all winter. [...]
