We love lemonade around here so when I heard my Grandma’s idea of freezing lemon juice I knew I had to get in on this! Not only does this give us lemon juice for dinners it also saves us from needing to buy lemonade concentrate or mix. We made our own concentrate and its ready to go when every we want!
Caylee and I went over to my grandma’s and picked as many lemons as we could! We ended up with a ton of them!
First peel your lemons or limes or oranges maybe grapefruits, whatever you have an abundance of!
Next was where the girls got to get involved. This was a great way to get their hands dirty (so to speak) without a huge mess! They ran all the slices through the juice until we had 17 cups of lemon juice!
Once all the lemons were juiced, at the recommendation from my Grandma I put them into one cup portions.
By putting the bag into a measuring cup before pouring the juice in, it kept the bag in place and held it up so juice wouldn’t go everywhere!
Zip the bags up so they are just about closed then lay it flat keeping a corner up so juice doesn’t run all over your counter. Then push the last little bit of air out and seal it up!
When you place these in the freezer lay them flat so they are neat and take up less space.
Then when you want lemonade just pull out your own 1 cup bag full of lemon juice and mix with water and sugar! Delicious! I also like to have lemon on my chicken so I marked one bag as the break off bag so I know that its less than a cup then I break off what I need for dinner and leave the rest in the bag! Its quiet convenient!
