When life gives you lemons, use ’em! Organic lemons add energizing flavor to drinks, dressings, entrées, and desserts. Slice and add to tea, zest into a marinade for a tangy twist, garnish your seafood meal, or use as an all-natural, all-purpose cleaner – lemons are a versatile fruit.


Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the secret to selecting the juiciest lemon?

Choose organic lemons that are heavy for their size – an indication they are juicy. Their peels should be firm and smooth.


How should I store my organic lemons to maximize freshness?

For longer-lasting lemons, store in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.


How much juice is in each lemon?

You should get 2 to 3 tablespoons of juice out of a medium-sized lemon. To maximize the amount you get, bring the fruit to room temperature and roll it under your palm to break down the cells inside that hold liquid. Or, you can microwave the lemon for 20 seconds.


What are some ways I can use lemon juice?

Squeeze lemon juice on fresh cut fruit and guacamole to prevent browning too quickly. Soothe a sore throat with hot tea, lemon juice, and honey. Flavor water or other beverages with fresh-squeezed wedges.


What other ways can I use lemons?

Lemons have all-natural cleaning power. Mix lemon juice and water in a spray bottle and use to clean mirrors, windows, and countertops. Dip a halved lemon in salt and scour your brass, copper, or stainless steel pots, pans, and sinks. Brighten aluminum by rubbing a cut lemon on it. When you’re done cleaning, toss the lemons in the disposal to deodorize your drain.
