The saying goes 'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade' ... and indeed I still could but with my bargain lemons, lovely luscious plump lemons at that, I decided to freeze them for whenever I decide to use them, for whatever purpose.
A good sign was they were full of pips, which means they had been left on the tree as long as possible to ripen naturally.
I sliced them quite thinly, and as evenly as I could, then layed them in a single layer on my recycled plastic trays ...
... stacked the trays carefully and popped them all in the freezer.
After a couple of hours I separated the slices where they were touching before they froze stuck together forever, and then put them back in the freezer overnight.
The next morning I popped them all into a couple of freezer proof boxes keeping one slice out to put in a glass of sparkling water with some ice cubes. A lovely refreshing treat for anytime of the day. When that glass of water was drunk I put the glass still containing the lemon slice into the fridge and simply topped it with more water whenever I fancied a drink throughout the day.
If one slice lasted me a whole day of top ups think how many drinks I am going to get out of all those slices stashed neatly in the freezer :-)
One pound fifty very well spent.
