When Life Hands You Lemons…

Dehydrate them.

Citrus is in season right now and high quality produce is going cheap right now.   I picked up about a dozen organic lemons the other day, cut them into 1/4 inch slices and threw them in the dehydrator overnight.     Lemons are something I don’t use often and it usually doesn’t make sense to keep them around.   We keep lemon juice for hummus and some Latin dishes, but just buying a lemon and cutting a wedge here and there usually ends up in wasting a lemon.    By dehydrating them, if I want lemon in tea or water, I just grab one and throw it in.   A dozen lemons sliced will probably keep us going for the year.   It’s always good to take advantage of surpluses and put some away for later.
