So Much Lemon Juice!

SO has been on a limoncello kick. She makes it, drinks it and gives it away.

The problem is limoncello uses lemon zest but not the juice. As a result we have a lot of lemon juice. Some of it is frozen from previous batches and this morning we have 12 lemons-worth of more juice.

What can I do with lemon juice that DOES NOT REQUIRE ZEST AS WELL?

Freeze it in ice cube trays for recipes.
Lemon curd
Lemonade
Lemon martinis

HELP!

Use the lemon cubes in Coke, iced tea or other drinks instead of water cubes.


I use lemon juice in salad dressings also.

Lemon bars, tart and pound cake.
I think Kayelle's Greek chicken thighs with orzo has a lot of lemon juice.
Greek potatoes and/or fish with lemon, oregano and garlic.
Get a few extra lemons and make preserved lemons - you need to cover the salted lemons with juice.
Marinades.

Lemon sherbet, I don't use zest when I make that.

The second recipe for lemon mousse, the one that doesn't use egg, has lemon juice, but doesn't use any zest: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...ml#post1002224

Make a shandy of lemonade and beer to go with Indian or other spicy/hot food.

Lemon juice is also a good household cleaner...lots of ideas online for such.

True! My all-purpose kitchen cleaner is a spray bottle with 1/3 each of water, white vinegar and lemon juice.

I put lemon juice on battered, deep fried fish instead of tartar sauce. I also put it liberally on tuna salad, especially in sandwiches.

I can remember my grandmother using something similar. Think I will try it the next time I have to get new cleaner for the kitchen.

Oh. Cold and sore throat season is on us. Put a lemon cube and honey in hot tea.
I also use lemon juice in chicken pan gravy and lamb braising liquid/gravy.
