What To Do With Surplus Lemons? (50 List)

Lemons are a versatile and flavorful fruit that can be used in a variety of dishes and drinks. They are high in vitamin C and add a tart, fresh taste to any recipe. A surplus of lemons can be a great problem to have, as there are many delicious and creative things that can be done with them.

One popular use for surplus lemons is to make lemonade. Lemonade is a classic summer drink that can be made by mixing freshly squeezed lemon juice with sugar and water. It is a refreshing and healthy alternative to soda or other sugary drinks. Another option is to freeze the lemon juice in ice cube trays, so it’s readily available to add to drinks or recipes.

Lemons can also be used to make dressings, marinades, and sauces. The acidity of the lemon can help to brighten up flavors and cut through rich or fatty flavors. For example, lemon juice can be used in a vinaigrette for a salad, or as a marinade for chicken or fish. Lemon zest, or the outer layer of the lemon peel, can also be used to add lemon flavor to baked goods, sauces, or any other recipe.
