When we last left our lemons, they were huddled together on the floor in plastic bags:
Now, I know that you’ve all been deeply concerned about the lemons’ ultimate fate.
And so, without further ado, here’s what happened next:
After separating trumot u’ma’asrot and washing the fruit, the Our Shiputzim Citrus Department cut the lemons in half:
And began squeezing:
They then poured the juice into plastic cups (each cup holds ½ a cup of juice) and flash froze the juice:
Once the juice was frozen, the cups were placed into plastic bags and returned to the freezer.
Which naturally begs the question: What will we do with the frozen lemon juice?
And the answer is…
Make lemonade, of course!
- 1 cup lemon juice (i.e. two plastic cups-worth)
- ¾ cup sugar
- 5 cups water
Love the title of this post. Glad it has nothing to do with cars.ReplyDelete
Reading blogs usually makes me hungry. This time I feel thirsty.ReplyDelete
Awesome! I need to get me a lemon tree :)ReplyDelete
We use 1/2 cup of sugar and only one frozen plastic cup of lemon juice. The containers from frozen OJ concentrate work well also.ReplyDelete

Toby - Don't forget that you have a standing invitation to come pick some lemons from our tree... :-)
Miriam - Interesting. For the same amount of water? (I didn't realize that you have a lemon tree.)
Miriyummy - Now THAT'S what I call lemonade... :-)
I love lemonade especially in the summer from the local kids I always buy from them.ReplyDelete
