Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Frozen Lemons

1635400225_comp

Summer is here, and now more than ever, it is important to hydrate. Ice cold water is not only refreshing, it is also more palatable than drinking it room temperature. A squirt of lemon adds a little flavor, as well as a jolt of vitamin C and potassium. Drinking lemon water is also reputed to boost our immune systems, aid digestion, and reduce inflammation. Freezing lemon slices can eliminate the need for ice cubes, and offer an infusion of taste and health benefits at the same time.

How to freeze lemon slices:

Scrub the lemons of any residue, and rinse them well. You can use a brush, a citrus based produce wash, or a mixture of white vinegar and water to get them clean. It is best to use organic lemons for this purpose, to cut down on pesticides. Wipe them dry.

Slice the lemons into 3/8″ thick slices, and cut them in half if desired. Freeze them on a parchment covered sheet pan until frozen through, and then transfer them to a zip lock freezer bag to store.

Grab a few to chill and flavor your water or iced tea, and enjoy!
