Lemons are typically not eaten as a snack as they are quite sour and tart. Freezing them makes them much more suitable for snacking as the cold temperatures reduce the sourness of the fruit considerably. As you probably already know, lemons are super healthy and offer plenty of medical benefits as the Vitman C they contain boosts your immune system and helps your body fight infections. They also contain substances that help prevent cancer, regulate blood pressure and they are even considered to be helpful for mental health, as they help against stress and depression.
The lemon peel
The reason why frozen lemons taste different than lemons stored at room temperature is the level of acidity. Freezing lemons reduces this acidity, which is why they taste significantly less sour. The acidity will only return when the fruit thaws. Please be aware that the lemon peel contains 5 to 10 times (1) more vitamins than lemon juice which is why you should definitely make use of it and not just throw it away. Frozen peel tastes amazing, just make sure to wash the lemon properly before storing it in the freezer!
Lemon peel adds a uniquely refreshing taste to food and drinks. Just sprinkle some of it on salads, ice cream, or even spaghetti and enjoy the flavor. Make sure the lemon is completely frozen before applying it to your food as frozen peel tastes way better than regular peel.
