What a great way to have your lemons available all year round by freezing them!  They defrost well albeit a little mushy, but this makes them softer and easier to juice.

You can freeze them whole , sliced or really however you want them.  Just put them in the microwave for a short time then use for juicing, grating zest etc.

Nothing better than placing a quarter of a frozen lemon into a G&T and enjoying the ice chill of the lemon  (no dilution of the gin from ice cubes),  then when the lemon softens squeeze in the gorgeous juice.  Yummo, come on summer.
