Freezing Your Citrus is a great idea

Why Should You Freeze Lemon?

While I was at the beach with my mom I noticed that she had a bag full of limes in the freezer.  she told me it was the way she save her limes and used them for her morning water.  I thought it was a great idea.

Last week she sent me this link explaining the benefit of frozen lemons and citrus.  Here is an excerpt from the blog www.curejoy.com.

One of the latest research showed for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.

Freezing lemon will preserve the nutrients in the peel as well and it is even easier to use the lemon as a whole. Simple, take an organic lemon, wash it and then put it in the freezer. Once it is frozen, you can use it whichever way you want to. You can grate or shred the whole lemon without even peeling it first. Then sprinkle it on your salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, or whatever.
