I love the scent of fresh lemons. When shopping in the produce section of my local Costco, I spotted packages of meyer lemons and couldn't pass them up. I brought some home with me and decided to freeze the juicy goodness into ice cubes. It's very simple and adds the perfect touch to any lemon dessert. I wanted to also try and freeze the peel, so I zested it and froze what I could into two ice cubes. I haven't used any yet in a recipe, so I can't tell you if it tastes just as good as fresh or not.
A good zester is a must. Mine is a Microplane.
I stuffed the zest into two ice cube molds and filled the rest with the juice.
I made a total of 32 lemon cubes. I only used about 6-8 lemons. Once the cubes are frozen I take them out of the molds and store them in a freezer zip lock bag. When using in a recipe make sure you allow enough time for the cube to melt; otherwise, try the microwave.
