Kitchen Tip: freeze and Grate Whole Lemons

Mom sent this info, but unsure of the exact source. its a great idea for using fresh lemon that you freeze

How can you use the whole lemon without waste? Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.  Sprinkle it on your salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes.... the list is endless.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?  Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've been wasting.  But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.  It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

Who knew, right? The surprising benefits of lemon!  In fact, Lemon (Citrus) is reported to kill cancer cells. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial   infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders. Hence why lemon essential oil is so great to have in you home health cabinet!
