Lemons are great for so many reasons. Not only are they loaded with Vitamin C, they're also great to flavour food, and even to be used in your personal self-care routine.
Fresh lemons can last anywhere from two to four weeks, and in the fridge, one to two months. If the one you have at hand sports a greenish tinge, it’s a definite sign that it hasn’t ripened fully. Meanwhile, those with dull or pale skins are old –you won’t be getting much juice out of them.
Here, we show you how to reap the benefits of lemons in the best ways possible.
Here’s a cooking hack!
If you’re ready for a nice afternoon of baking, only to find that your brown sugar has clumped up the night before, try tossing the peel of half a lemon into the jar and let it sit through the night. The peel purportedly retains water and can help add moisture back to your sugar, making it loose and soft once more.
