This is why you need to start freezing lemons

I’m sure we’ve all heard about the benefits of adding a squirt of lemon juice to our cup of water in the mornings, and there’s nothing I like better than a warm lemon honey drink when I have a cold – but it turns out the best way of all to be using lemons is by putting them in your freezer and making frozen lemons.

Frozen lemons are now being hailed as a cancer preventative along with improving your immune system and cleansing your liver and kidneys. So why are frozen lemons supposedly so much better for you? The answer may lie within the rinds…

What makes frozen lemon rind so special?

Lemon juice itself is incredibly beneficial for our bodies however, the rind of a lemon has 10 times more vitamins than it’s juice. There’s a plethora of vitamins and nutrients within a lemon. While the juice itself contains vitamin C the peel contains the nutrients. People do often use cooked lemon rinds in cakes and muffins but the cooking process can cause the lemon to lose up to 40 per cent of its properties. Freezing the lemon ensures that that all of the goodness lemons have to offer is conserved, plus lemon ice cubes taste pretty good.
