Apologies for the past few missing blog posts! Things appear to be fixed now…..
So – lemons. Sour and unforgiving, the flavor attacks the taste buds and overwhelms the melancholy of the tongue to awaken the senses – all of em. Whether you like it or not. That sour cheek blast is going to get you…….but there’s an upside!
Lemons are beyond excellent for skin, hair and all your internal wonderfulness. I always squeeze fresh lemon juice into my water as it super charges things and allows my body to work the way it should. It is also an excellent way to keep the liver clean and running smoothly.

It is not only a blood purifier but also enables the body to fight diseases. Lemon juice, especially, has several health benefits associated with it.

My biggest issue with lemons? Keeping them fresh long enough to use them! I remember being able to keep a lemon around the kitchen for weeks before they would start to feel a little soft. nowadays, i see green mold all over the underside of my lemons within 3-5 days. It is unacceptable! Who do you contact? Someone fill me in…..
Someone gave me this incredible suggestion about storing lemons. It is so simple – and it keeps as many lemons fresh as you need – long term!
All you do is take your lemons and slice them up. I love the look of a perfectly round lemon slice. They also affix to the edge of a summertime drink wonderfully too!
So you slice them all up. Grab yourself a 4L ice cream pail that has been cleaned and dried and layer the slices in the pail. be sure to place a layer of saran wrap, wax paper or freezer paper between each layer of lemons. It prevents them from globbing together.
So your pail of lemon now looks like this. Lovingly slap a lid on this and store it in the freezer!
I always have lemon in my water, so all I have to do is grab the pail – they’re already sliced up for me!
Pitchers of lemonade just became that much easier!
The best part of the entire thing? No more moldy, wasted lemons. I’m about to save a lot of money by saving lemons. Where I live, I often pay up to fifty cents per lemon. I recall one visit to the grocery store and they were a dollar each.
Remember: It’s not what it costs – it’s what it is worth to you.
