If you love lemons, you probably noticed that they start to get hard skins within a week or so of being in the refrigerator. Especially if you buy the bags of fancy lemons, you want the lasting as long as possible so you can use them all. But did you know that there are ways you can store your lemons to keep the last even longer?
When lemons are older,, the skin start to harden and lemons with harder skins produce far less lemon juice than fresher lemons. And once the skin hardens, they start to turn bad much quicker.
First of all, whatever you do, do not store your lemons at room temperature. This will harden up the skins even faster, so you definitely want to keep them in the refrigerator.
When you get home, remove the lemons from the produce bag from the grocery store. This will cause the lemons to go bad faste.r, where the outer skin hardens. Believe it or not, the skin doesn’t really protect the lemon all that well once it is picked.
Now you want to place the lemons in a sealed Ziploc bag to keep them fresh for at least a month.
