We are just winding down on citrus season, but lemons aren't usually too expensive most of the time anyway. I really love a good lemon taste to just about anything. It's acidity is sometimes the perfect balance in my recipes to make them taste just right. If lemon is something you really enjoy, check out these 14 Fresh Lemon Recipes along with some good tips on storing lemons for optimal freshness.
How to Store Fresh Lemons
Lemons can be stored in the fridge for up to a month and retain maximum freshness. While most people think lemons look very nice and cheery when stored on the counter, this can actually speed up the process of them drying out and losing freshness. To get more juice from your lemons, try storing them in a plastic zipper style bag in the fridge, uncut.
