lemons, limes and all things citrus

juicy lemonHow many times have you only used half a lemon for a recipe, or just a few wedges of lime for your gin & tonic. Then you pop that half unused fruit back in your fridge and it dries up and is basically useless for any other purpose?

I’m addicted to drinking a slice of lemon and fresh ginger in hot water. I drink it all day long but what I don’t want is an air dried lemon from the fridge – I want a juicy citrus fresh lemon.

So here is my trick, taught to me by my mother in law!

Take a plate and add a thin layer of cold water over the surface and place your citrus fruit cut side down and place into the fridge. I promise, this will keep it almost like fresh for up to a week.
