Frozen Lemon Recipe

Karen, my sister-in-law, mentioned how freezing and grating a lemon tasted so amazing when sprinkled on food.  I’m thrilled with my new discovery of an old idea about the healthy use of an entire lemon with no waste.

I love adding lemon to ice water, so I filled my ice cube trays half full of distilled water and a heaping teaspoon of grated lemon.  When frozen, the cubes were placed back into the freezer in a zip lock bag.

Now I can add one or two lemon flavored cubes to a glass of water for a refreshing drink.  Since the lemon peel contains over 5 times
more vitamins than the lemon juice itself, please join me in a drink to our good health.
