Microwave your Lemons………

Get more juice out of your Lemons by microwaving it whole for around 20-30 seconds on high. It’s just enough time to release the juices, but be careful not to go overboard and dry the flesh out.

Zest me later………………..

Don’t discard the rinds of limes, lemons, oranges, or other citrus. Grate them, then store in tightly covered glass jars in the fridge. They make excellent flavorings for cakes, and can be sprinkled over chicken ans fish as well.

Save the lemons………….

Lemons will stay fresh for up to three months if you store them in a bowl of water in the fridge. Just change the water every week.

Bring on on the Lemons and Limes………….

Citruses are a natural taste enhancer and a good way to add a zest of vitamin C in your diet. For example, you can garnish your veggie rices or quinoa pilaffs with a lemon slice; and your Thai or Vietnamese soups and chilli sin carne with lime.
