Simply so, what is the best way to store fresh lemons?
While there's nothing wrong with keepingyourlemons out on the counter (especially if you don't buymorethan you can use before they dry out), they'll definitelystayfresh longer if you put them in the fridge inasealed plastic bag.
Likewise, how do you store lemons in the fridge? If you have used one part of the lemon and wishtostore the other, it is best to place the halvedlemonon a small plate and wrap it a plastic wrap. Put it inan air-tightcontainer and store it in therefrigerator. If youhave juiced the lemon and wishto store it, make sureyou don't keep it at roomtemperature.
In this way, how long can you keep lemons in the fridge?
about 3 to 4 weeks
