I was running errands the other day and running very low on time. In a effort to skip the grocery store, I decided to pick up as many items as I could from Costco while I was there figuring I could just freeze the extra. Lemons were on my list and so I walked out of Costco with the world’s largest bag of lemons. I probably should have entered into some contest like the Guinness Book of World Records for most lemons bought at one time. Instead, I went home and tried to decide the best ways to use the lemons so they didn’t go waste. Just in case you ever find yourself in the same situation or you just love lemons, I’m sharing 17 mouthwatering ways to use lemons.
Lemons are so versatile. From breakfast foods to dinners to desserts, you can use the juice, zest or the entire lemon in so many delicious ways. I’ve got a little bit of everything in this collection and I plan to try as many as possible as I work my way through the dozens of lemons sitting in my kitchen.
