How to store lemons

Postby petunia princess » 08 Feb 2010, 18:28

I just read about this in a reputable cooking magazine.

To keep lemons fresh for the longest amount of time, store them in a sealed plastic bag in the vegetable bin of your refrigerator. They should "keep" very well for 6-8 weeks. This is three-to-four times longer than if you simply stored them on a counter.

Thanks PP. We also use quite a few, so it's worth remembering. Does anyone know if there's a good way of keeping a lemon juicy if you cut one in half and want to store the remainder?

I once bought frozen lemon wedges from a supermarket....I have been meaning to try freezing them myself sometime.

Would freezing work for a lemon cut in half though pasta?
