Amazing frozen lemons
All it a frozen lemon

Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky.... the list is endless.

All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.

Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've been wasting.

But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That's the lemon secret! Better late than never, right? The surprising benefits of lemon!
Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.

You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.

How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it
is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.
The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas…

The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better
than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.

And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them. Your whole body will love you for it!!!!!

My wife froze a couple of lemons recently and yesterday tried to grate one so that she could make a lemon syrup songe cake.

They were almost impossible to grate, and we ended buying :-| some!

The reason for the frown is that we have a large lemon tree in the garden (standard for most aussie homes) but at the moment what fruit there is on it isn't ripe :-(

Snopes doesn't agree with the medical side of it.

I never thought of freezing lemons.

I will try this out.

Something different......... I already have jars of lemon/orange marmalade!

OH actually eats lemon rind! Without screwing his face up :-0


SylviaInCanada Report 12 Mar 2013 00:50

whenever we need to use the pulp or juice of a lemon, I take off the rind .................

it can get a bit messy ................ bit hard to squeeze a lemon without the rind, and hard to grate the rind off quarters of lemon, sometimes

so I usually end up using a peeler to strip off the rind without much pith, then a very sharp knife to cut it into tiny strips.

Then I put the rind into a freezer bag, and pop it into the door of the freezer.

It's there for whenever I need grated rind ...... whether for a cake, stir fry or whatever!

I even take the rind off the lemon quarters that we have squeezed over pancakes.

I've done this for years ................ it saves throwing out the rind when you only need the pulp or juice, or throwing out the pulp and juice when you only want the rind.

If you want juice from a lemon but don't want to waste the rest of it, you can roll it hard on a worktop, then wash it well and stick a clean skewer or similar object into the peel and squeeze the juice from the hole. Warming in a microwave for a few seconds also helps release the juice, don't make the hole first tho lol

You can use the rest of the lemon cut into pieces and frozen into ice cubes for drinks, or freeze it until you need lemon peel, or cut it in half and pour boiling water over the lemon halves, strain and add honey for a soothing drink when you have a sore throat or a cold.

You can also use two lemon halves after the juice is squeezed out, sit for a few minutes with each elbow in each half of lemon while you read a magazine or have a cuppa, it will whiten discoloured elbows, or you can do it with your fingertips to remove stains from fingernails.

A frozen lemon will be almost impossible to grate!
Try it, but have a good supply of plasters ready!

Freeze lemon peel, chopped after peeling.
Whizz the flesh in a food processor and freeze the pulp for lemon meringue pie
Slice & freeze lemon slices for G&T


LadyScozz Report 12 Mar 2013 08:33

I have a bag of frozen lemon juice in the freezer. Each block is about 1 Tablespoon.

Next time I do the ice I'll chop up the lemon peel.

The problem will be finding space in the freezer!



Sharron Report 12 Mar 2013 09:14

Having taken the peel off a lemon with the potato peeler I then cut it up the same way as I chop herbs,in a cup with a pair of scissors.

Lol @ OFITG comments :-D

I quite agree! I have never liked a slice of lemon in an alcoholic drink....only time in a drink , possibly on a hot day in an iced glass of water (usually abroad when they take the glasses out of the fridge too ) then the slice gets binned well before the water is drunk.!

I just don't like the taste of lemon, in cake or anything :-(
So , no thanks AnnC no takes for your frozen lemon ;-)

Putting it in a decent Malt could be construed as a Hanging Offence. :-D :-D :-D
