Freezing citrus

3 posts in this topic

The meyer lemon tree in my backyard is laden with fruit...around 40 of them. Was really looking forward to having my way with them over the next few weeks. But there was a hard freeze, and my marmalade dreams are fading. What do you think, can I stick them in the freezer whole and thaw/ prep for marmalade later?

Yes. Freeze them immediately. Otherwise pick them all, peel them and blanch them in two changes of water squeeze them as dry as possible and freeze the peels.

Process the pulp for juice, strain and freeze that for later use.


"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Thank you, Andie! I thought it sounded like it should be doable, just wasn't sure of the particulars.
