I scored some organic lemons today at Kroger!
Ten lemons for $2.29. Not too bad.
I gave one to my son who sucked the juice and ate the pulp out of it.
Nine of them I juiced. I got about 1 and 1/2 cups of juice.
Three of those I zested and froze the zest.
Those three I halved and have in the freezer for cleaning purposes. Ya know, like scrubbing the tub with baking soda.
The remaining six I peeled the pith off and made candied lemon peels.
I really did not want to waste the sugar water that was used for the candy so I decided to use some of the juice, added some pomegranate juice, and the sugar water and made pomegranate lemonade!
Oh and the pith and the one lemon my son ate? I put down the disposal to freshen it up. I literally only threw away the seeds!
DD2 came home from marching band practice and said that she could smell the lemons OUTSIDE! I guess it is better that the house smells like lemons than something yucky!
