Tuesday Tip: Lemon Ice Cubes

 There are two kinds of people in this world. People who like lemon in their water and people who don't. Years ago I worked as a server at a local restaurant and I always made sure to ask before putting a slice of fresh lemon in their water, because the latter types of people were basically insulted when you just assume that's what they wanted. I myself am a lemon lover. So when a girlfriend of mine posted online that she had to harvest her lemon tree and didn't know what to do with them all, I gladly offered to stop by and take some off of her hands. I've been pressing them into my fresh juice in the morning, zesting them into our dinners, and making ice cubes. Yep. Lemon ice cubes. It's the easiest way to always ensure you have fresh lemon juice on hand. Whether you're tossing them into a cocktail, adding more citrus to your lemonade, or just flavoring your water, these lemon ice cubes are a perfect addition to quench your thirst on a sunny day.

To make lemon ice cubes, slice lemon in half, juice into a 2-cup or larger measuring cup. Once all lemons have been juiced, run the juice through a fine mesh colander/sieve into a clean bowl or cup. Fill an ice cube tray with the lemon juice and freeze until solid. Keep in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
