Equipment

  • Juicer, hand-held or electric
  • Ice cube trays

Ingredients

  • Whole lemons

Instructions

  • To make the fruit easier to juice, roll firmly on the counter with the palm of your hand to loosen up the flesh.
  • Cut the fruit in half crosswise and juice it using a handheld juicer, food processor attachment or whatever tool you happen to favor.
  • Using a small ladle or a small pitcher with a spout, pour the citrus juice into ice cube trays. Each standard-sized ice cube will contain about 2 tablespoons of liquid. However, I suggest measuring the capacity of your ice cube tray to be sure.
  • Freeze until solid. Juice will freeze to a stage that is slightly softer than regular ice cubes. Remove cubes from the tray and place in a freezer resealable bag.
  • When you are ready to use the juice, remove the number of ice cubes from the freezer that you desire and defrost them.
