Tips and Tricks Tuesdays: Saving Your Dollars – Citrus

Freeze and Save

Get the most out of your grocery dollars by freezing extras strategically. You’ll be amazed by how much you can save! Be sure to label freezer bags carefully with the item, amount and date frozen.



The best way to freeze citrus is to freeze the juice in ice-cube trays until solid, then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag. Freeze it in 1- to 2-Tbsp. portions―it should keep indefinitely. Thaw at room temperature or in the fridge (or use lemon cubes in iced tea). You can also freeze the zest: Zest the fruit onto a sheet of plastic wrap, wrap tightly and place in a freezer bag.
