Always Do This to Your Lemons Before Juicing Them

Using up as much of the food we have is always important, but it seems like it’s even more important right now. When you’re not sure if you’re going to be able to run to the store today, using what you have becomes crucial. That’s why we bring you this amazing tip that can become your good habit.

Before you juice a lemon, take a zester and use it to get the lemon zest that you can save in a zip-lock bag in the freezer. Recipes always call for it and you’ll feel like a master chef when you simply whip it out from the freezer instead of having to zest a whole new lemon that you may not even plan to juice. It’s much faster, too: it will take you less than a minute to get the bag out of the freezer and take out as much as you need before putting the bag back. By the time you’re done, you wouldn’t have even taken out your zester from the drawer!
