The best way to store lemons

Lemon cheesecake

America’s Test Kitchen Feed recently  tackled one of the kitchen’s basic questions: How to best store lemons? It’s tempting (and cheaper) to buy lemons in bulk, but then how to keep them juicy?

In We Prove It: The Best Way To Store Lemons, they compared the results between storing whole lemons in an unsealed container,  in a zipper-lock bag with 1/4 cup of water, and in a zipper-lock bag without water, both at room temperature and in the refrigerator. The winner was the last approach – refrigerated zipper-lock bag (the water made no difference).

And what to do with all those lemons? As part of the article,  ATK is offering their lemon cheesecake recipe for free through Feb. 20.  And if you own some of ATK’s or Cook’s Illustrated publications, remember we have America’s Test Kitchen’s books, Cook’s Illustrated books, and Cook’s Illustrated magazines indexed at the EYB library for easy searching.
