What to do with extra citrus

Posted on 08 February 2009 by ChefBud

Today I noticed that I had some grapefruit that I probably won’t use while in it’s prime. Whenever I have citrus around that I am not going to get to, I juice them. This can be done with lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit or pretty much any citrus fruit. Then I pour the juice into ice cube trays and freeze them. Once frozen, I transfer the cubes into labeled and dated ziplock bags. The ice cube sized portions are perfect. I can pull out one single cube to add to marinades and dressings or multiple cubes to make citrus based sauces like Mojo. In these tough times, why waste anything.

    Great advice Bud. What an easy way to use what you have and eliminate waste. I bet it would be a great way to make fresh drinks as well. Or prep for a party. Looking forward to more posts.

    Very smart usage of the juice especially the marinade.
    I would also suggest to use it in Fish en Papillote.
    White or salmon will work nicely with some instant couscous and veggies. Placing the frozen ice cubes in the en Papillote and putting it in the over.
