In hindsight, I would probably grate off the rind if the limes were fresh, and then freeze the naked limes in a ziplock. Or just juice and freeze.
Yeah, grating and juicing and then freezing is probably best, but there are just some times that I just don't have that many spoons. I'm glad to know I can just chuck them in the freezer.

I always try to have two lemons on hand. There are some dry spells when I don't bake or cook anything that calls for lemon. So when they have been sitting in the fridge for more than a couple of weeks, I first remove all the zest and then squeeze the juice out after zapping them for about 15 seconds in the MW. The zest and juice are stored is separate containers in the freezer.

That microwave trick really does let you get more juice out of lemons and limes.

Sometimes I think that little machine was just invented for the sole purpose of putting lemons and limes in there. When I use my squeezer I swear I leave nothing behind. That shell is bone dry.

Thanks GilliAnne.
You're welcome, Roll_Bones. Did you find out if lemon or lime was to blame. Anything citrus, as well as cheese, caffeine and chocolate - but not white chocolate, I'm happy to say, are common triggers.
