Keep lemons firm and juicy for 4 wks with food storage hack ‘Won’t go wrinkly or mouldy!'


Most households tend to buy lemons in bulk, and while they can last a long time in a fruit bowl, they will eventually go wrinkly and shrink. Here is the best way to store lemons and keep them fresher for longer. 

It can be tempting to store lemons in a pretty bowl on a kitchen counter or table. 

But you should avoid the urge to decorate with fresh fruit. 

If left at room temperature, lemons dry out, leaving you with less juice and a tougher rind. 

Lemons stored at room temperature can last for about a week.

If you want to increase their shelf lif, they are best kept in the fridge. 

You can simply stash them in the fridge in the crisper drawer, or on a shelf. 

The popular citrus fruit will be fresh and juicy for two weeks. 

However, pop them into a sealed bag or container in the fridge and they will last four times longer than when kept at room temperature.

The popular citrus fruit will be fresh and juicy for two weeks. 

However, pop them into a sealed bag or container in the fridge and they will last four times longer than when kept at room temperature. 

Lemon juice, on the other hand, can be kept in the fridge for a few days without any diminished quality. 

After a few days, it is best used in cooking or baking. 

Use it up within two weeks or freeze the rest – you can do this by pouring the juice into ice cube trays.
