I got out my juicer and lemons and gave them a twist.
Out of four lemons, I almost got a whole tray out of it. Place the juice through the small mesh strainer before you put it in the trays.
How easy is this? Now you can take out a cube and let it thaw and use it for any of your lemon recipes, plus, you can zest the lemons first and place it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. The fresh lemon zest will take your recipes to a new level.
You can use the cubes in your water and Iced Tea also.

I grew up in Arizona and our neighbors had a lemon tree. One of my “chores” growing up was juicing lemons and oranges (from our 2 trees). We definitely froze lemon juice just like this, and it was perfect portions for lemonade, etc. Great idea!
I keep looking for neighbors with lemon trees, I can't find any. My friends send them to me when they have too many. At least I can have them now.
Stopping by from a comment you left on a blog – because I am a sucker for lemons. Love, love, love them. My parents live in Phoenix and I always take me a bag of lemons from one of their trees home to Colorado. My mom does this with lemons too. Great way to preserve them for future baking. I squeeze lemon juice onto crepes and then dust them with some powdered suger – my favorite way to have them. Squeeze them on salads, fish, into homemade salad dressings, squeeze a half a lemon, a T of honey and 1 C hot water first thing in the morning. Gets me through winters without a cold and is good to keep things “moving” too. Love lemon dessert of any kind… okay… I'll stop. But I could go on and on.

I love lemons and I try to put them in everything I can. I do keep my zest in the fridge as well. I especially love baking with lemons….I love citrus flavor and aroma.

What a great idea! I am a lemon fanatic— salads, soups, meat, seafood, beverages…. it gets added to everything (my husband has to remind me that not everyone likes things as sour as I do)!
