Making the Most of Produce – Oranges, Lemons & Limes

Use these simple techniques to improve getting every use possible out of fresh produce.

 Oranges & Lemons

When oranges and lemons are in season and abundant, 

peel them and set the peelings out to dry

store in a cool open place and check frequently to make sure they have plenty of air circulation (and are not growing mold!)

once peeling are dry, tear them into quarter or dime sized pieces and store them in a glass jar

use them to make tea, grate into dishes, or put into a coffee grinder to make powder

juice the insides and freeze the juice in ice cube molds

****I froze the lemon pulp that was the waste product from the juicer… thinking it would make a great cleaning product – but have yet to figure out how to get it from point A to point B.  Any ideas?

 

Limes

Zest them  – set the zest out to dry

Place dried zest in clean baby food jars for storage

Freeze the juice in ice cube molds.
