How To Store Lemons and Lime for 3 months

Lemons and limes have endless uses, not just for eating or flavoring! People store lemons and limes in a few different kind of ways. I have the perfect lemon and lime storage hack that will help keep your lemons fresh and wrinkle-free! Let me show you how to store lemon and lime for 3 months!!!


How To Store Lemon and Lime for 3 months

Buying the Perfect Lemon/Lime

Lemons and limes are definitely a kitchen grocery staple. They are used for so many different delicious dishes and so much more. So, buying the perfect lemons and limes is important because it affects flavor and longevity.

What to look for when buying lemons or limes

  • should have no bruising
  • shouldn’t be spongy or very soft
  • no moldy areas
  • no bumpy or wrinkly skin
  • larger lemons or limes are usually sweeter
  • look for ones with thinner skin since they are juicier and should be smooth
  • it should be a little firm but give a little when you press it; not rock-hard
  • should be a little heavy for their size

Best Way To Store Lemons and Lime

There is more than one way to store lemons and limes. I’m going to give you an idea of the most popular, beginning with my own way of storing lemon and lime for 3 monhts! But before I delve into the details of how to store lemons and limes for 3 months, let’s talk a little about cleaning them. Before storage, you should ensure that you’ve appropriately cleaned them. Lots of citrus fruits have a layer of wax on the outside, either naturally or sprayed on.

You should wash your hands with soap and warm water before handling lemons or limes. You can wash them in two ways. First, you can put them into a bowl with a drop of dishwashing soap and fill the bowl half way with water. Then, you start scrubbing them with a fruit brush one by one and put them under running water. Finally, you can put them in a strainer to dry or dry them with a hand towel. The second way is simply to soak them in water and vinegar for a few minutes and then scrub them with your hands under cool running water one by one. One process is a little longer and maybe a bit more tedious while one is simple and quick. Your choice!


How To Store Lemons

Lemon Storage: I store my lemons and limes in a bowl submerged in water in my fridge! It’s the perfect way to store lemons because it ensures they stay wrinkle-free and fresher. They can last up to three months stored this way in your fridge. A lot longer than other lemon and lime storage hacks!

This is a great way since most storage methods ask that you don’t pile lemons on top of each other to avoid bruising or squishing. In water, they basically float around or at least don’t have their weight bearing down on each other even if they were touching.

The water in the bowl also helps in replenishing the moisture that gets lost over time from the lemons. When lemons lose moisture they start to mold or rot. So, not only does it preserve them but it helps keep them juicy!

How To Store Lemons and Lime for 3 months

Other Lemon and Lime Storage Methods

  • Devote a compartment or drawer just for lemons and store by placing them next to each other. If it’s not in the fridge, make sure it’s an airy space. Lasts about 7 to 10 days.
  • Store in an airtight container or closed plastic bag in room temperature with the air sucked out. You can remove air from the plastic bag by placing a straw in the side of the bag and sucking out the air before closing. Lasts nearly a month.
  • You can seal them the same way as mentioned above and place in your fridge but they won’t last as long! In an airtight container or plastic bag in the fridge, they would last about two weeks.

Uses for Lemons and Limes outside of cooking

Now that you know my secret for storing lemon and lime for 3 months, you can buy a little extra lemons and keep them stored for their oh so many uses! Sure we love the zest of citrus in many different dishes we eat, but lemons are much more versatile than just for flavoring foods.

Use lemon and limes to:

  • wash your hands to remove grease or oil or to kill bacteria
  • scrub greasy pots and pans to get them clean and shiny again
  • cut them up and put them with water in a bowl and microwave; use the lemon water to clean walls or countertops
  • use lemon juice on the stains of white linens and let them dry in the sun for a bleach-type affect
  • add lemon juice to vinegar to make a cleaning spray used to clean nearly anything, especially as a glass cleaner

How Long Does Lemon Last

Lemons should last about a week if you store them on the counter top and a few days longer in the pastry! If you transfer them to the refrigerator, you can expect them to last about 3-4 weeks. Now, if you take the extra step and seal the lemons tightly, they can last for about 5 weeks.

The Vegan 8 Vanilla Cupcakes

Tuesday's Horse

My most favourite vegan chef is Richa Hingle, known to the world as Vegan Richa. Hot on her heels is another tremendous vegan chef, Brandi Doming, or The Vegan 8 (the 8 representing that her recipes contain 8 ingredients or less).

I discovered The Vegan 8 on Instagram and fell in love with Doming’s baked goods — me being the obsessed baker that I am. I would love to bake than cook any day. Truly my great love besides family and animals is baking.

Today I want to feature a cupcake recipe that is particularly dear to my heart. It’s a vanilla cupcake recipe made with rice flour and no oil. This is melt in your mouth vegan heaven.

Here’s what it looks like on Instagram. I list the ingredients just below that. There are some ingredients that are not likely to be on your shelf, vegan or not, so…

These Super Satisfying Vegan Meatballs Couldn’t Be Easier

delish.com
Lena Abraham

Park Feierbach

Few comfort foods satisfy like a hearty bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Now, my vegan friends, you TOO can enjoy this comfort sans guilt! These chickpea based meatballs pack tons of flavor, come together quickly, and even provide a good amount of protein and fiber. Here’s why we think our vegan meatballs are the best:

No Flax

Lots of vegan recipes call for making a “flax egg”, which is basically a stand-in for eggs. Don’t get us wrong, sometimes a flax egg is the best option. Unfortunately, flax seeds can have a fishy aftertaste—NOT a flavor you want in a dish that should taste, well, beefy. We’ve found that chia seeds soaked in water give us a similar effect, but without the aftertaste. Plus, chia seeds are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, benefits you’d never get from an actual meatball.

Super Sturdy

Once baked, these balls have a near-perfect texture. Not at all mushy on the inside, and perfectly firm and almost crisp on the outside. Toss them in your favorite sauce, stuff them into a meatball sub, or even serve them on top of a salad! They’re sturdy enough for any application, making them ideal repurposed leftovers or for meal prepping.

A Special Secret Ingredient

Any guesses? Fennel seeds! Don’t sleep on ’em! These little guys will give you that familiar meaty flavor. They’re smoky and savory and they make these meatballs EXTRA addictive—don’t skip!

Yields: 3 – 4 servings

Prep Time: 0 hours 10 mins

Total Time: 0 hours 45 mins

Cooking spray, for pan

2 c. canned chickpeas

2 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds

6 tbsp. water

1/2 c. rolled oats

1 1/2 tbsp. tomato paste

3 tbsp. chopped basil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. fennel seeds

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 425°, then line a medium baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with cooking spray.
Drain chickpeas, reserving liquid. Transfer chickpeas to a food processor and process until broken down.
Make chia egg: Combine chia seeds and water in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Let sit 5 minutes, until mixture gels and becomes thick.
Add chia egg, oats, tomato paste, basil, garlic, fennel seeds, and red pepper flakes into the food processor and blend until combined. If mixture is too dry, add liquid from chickpea can 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Season with salt and pepper.
Form mixture into 16 meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip meatballs, and bake 8 to 10 minutes more, until golden and crisp. Serve with your favorite pasta and sauce.

Steamed Apple Pudding

The Magick Kitchen

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I do love a steamed vegan pudding.

I’m such a fan I don’t like having to wait for nearly two hours for my puds to steam. So I cheat; I use the microwave to speed up the cooking time to only 4 mins, or so.

I replaced the egg with a chickpea batter made with water and gram flour. Added in some chopped apple, and apple puree. And replaced the milk with non-dairy milk.

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

Feed Your Beauty

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

This week marked a first for me in kitchen experiments. I baked my very first loaf of homemade bread, from scratch (i.e. no bread maker!). There was a lot of kneading (making bread is a full body workout, ya’ll), a lot of waiting, some serious through-the-oven-door watching, and then a whole bunch more impatient waiting. When it was finally done, cooled, sliced, (slathered with today’s almond butter) and eaten, I felt some serious satisfaction. I made bread. Breeeeaaaaaadddd! Breeeaaaaadddd!! With my own two hands.

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

Making your own almond butter can bring you that very same deep sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, but without the upper body workout, blood, sweat, and tears that making bread from scratch entails. In fact, your kitchen gadgets do all work for you. Hmm… maybe that’s why people buy breadmakers.

Classic Tomato Soup
imageBy Lena Abraham
Oct 11, 2018
by Delish US

There’s really nothing more comforting than a steaming hot bowl of tomato soup. We prefer using canned tomatoes rather than fresh because they tend to be packed in peak season—that means they’re perfectly ripe! PLUS, the skins are removed. That means less work for you!

Recipe…

Yields: 6 servings
Prep Time: 0 hours 10 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 30 mins

Ingredients

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish

1 small yellow onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

2 tbsp. tomato paste

1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish

2 (28-oz.) cans whole peeled tomatoes

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 c. water or vegetable stock

Directions

In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 6 minutes. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste and cook until garlic is fragrant and tomato paste has darkened, 2 to 3 minutes more.
Add thyme and both cans tomatoes, including the juice. Add water or vegetable stock and bring up to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes.
Blend with immersion blender or transfer to a blender in batches and blend until smooth. Ladle into bowls and serve with a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh thyme leaves.
