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

juice the insides and freeze the juice in ice cube molds

Zest them – set the zest out to dry
Place dried zest in clean baby food jars for storage
