When most of us bring home lemons from the store we go to eat one, we usually cut it up into wedges or slices. But did you know that there is a much better way to store and use lemons, which involves putting them in the freezer! It sounds odd at first, but that way you can easily grate them up later for a powerful, tasty health kick.

Once the lemon is frozen solid take it out of the freezer and cut off one end, so that it’s nice and flat. Place the flat side against the grater and begin grating it as if you were grating a block of cheese. Doing it this way makes the lemon easier to hold steady and cuts down on the risk of it slipping while you’re shredding it up. After you’re done, store the lemon gratings in a resalable container or use them to flavor food. Don’t worry about ruining a recipe, grated lemon is not as overpowering as you may think it to be. Instead, the lemony shreds compliment and bring out the other flavors and what you get is a very unique type of flavoring that differs from that of squeezing plain old lemon juice on food.

All you have to do is freeze lemons, it’s really that simple and your mind, body, and palette will all benefit and thank you in the end. Help spread this healthy tip and enjoy!
