There is More Than Lemonade to Lemons

When I come up with more lemons than sweetness I look for ways to turn things around. One of my favorite ways to use lemons is to squeeze them and use the juice in recipes and drink lemon water. Lemon juice can replace salt which we should cut back on. I love to sauté chicken and then squeeze on a liberal drop of lemon juice and for just a bit of some saltiness a splash of soy sauce. There is nothing like it in taste. Some fried potatoes or non-greasy French fries also greatly benefit from a squeeze of lemon.

Of course, if you like you can add a pinch of sugar and a teaspoon of grated lemon rind to a bottle of vodka. Shake it well and place it in the freezer. Once it is nice and icy you can drink it straight or add it to your favorite cocktail. It gives it a really nice kind of flavor.

It is great when making a salad. Use lemon juice, a bit of soy sauce, add a bit of olive oil or sunflower seed oil and toss through any kind of salad it is just great in flavor. Saves you lots of calories which salad dressings provide. Use it for seafood and fish and lots of different vegetables such as broccoli.

  1. When I make lemonade in the summer I use water and sugar to make up for what lemons do not come out much in the making. I have used lemon juice when I have hot water and honey but do not use it for other things I eat. Very interesting idea you have.
