When Life Gives You Lemons....

Save some for later! That's the only answer to the bushels of lemons that are falling all over our driveway. We seem to have an ideal climate for growing lemons. When lemon season hits here, there are more lemons than anyone could possibly use.

I've been working on freezing the juice for the times of year when there are none. It's a pretty straightforward process. I just squeezed the lemon juice through a strainer into a big bowl. Then when the bowl seemed full enough, I began pouring it through a funnel into ice cube trays. After it's frozen, I will pop out the lemon cubes and put them in bags for easier storage. Hopefully, we'll be able to break off a cube of lemon juice whenever we need some.

Our wonderful tree. Actually our neighbor's tree coming over onto our side, but they don't mind.
