I need suggestions on what to do with a dozen naked lemons. I used the peels to make limoncello, so any ideas?

Freeze 'em. I am amazed how well that works. I got a huge bag of limes from Costco, froze most in small 4 lime packs, and just pull out one or two for when I need them.

Since you've removed the zest, there's no point in keeping the lemons whole.

I'd juice then then freeze the juice in ice cube trays. When frozen, pop them into a Ziplock and keep them in the freezer until you need some juice. That's more convenient for storage and you don't have to thaw and squeeze lemons when you need some juice.

You mean no one said "when life hands you lemons, make Arnold Palmers"?

I like Andy's idea. I use the Minute Maid lemon juice that is sold in the frozen food department. If I ever had lemons I needed to save from death I would do it Andy's way.

Saw something on ATK the other day. They took and roasted the Lemons in 350 oven and then made a Vinaigrette with Dijion mustard. Looked really good.
