We all know that lemons are a citrus fruit that provides us with numerous health benefits. They are used to treat illnesses such as the common cold or the flu and to prevent kidney stones. Lemons also reduce fluid retention and improve the blood vessels function.
Keeping the lemons in a bowl on the table in our kitchen or in the living room can add a lot to a room aesthetically. However, this isn’t the best way to preserve them.
Lemons are rarely kept in the fridge, which is absolutely wrong, because they tend to expire after seven days at room temperature. Because of this, lemons lose a lot of their nutritional value and their taste.
Here is a simple solution to keep your lemons fresh for longer: they will preserve their properties such as their taste, juiciness, tenderness if you keep them in the fridge in a sealed plastic bag or zip bags!
Keeping them in the fridge is a perfect balance between oxygen exposure and cold temperature. The fridge temperature will slow the lemons respiratory process without stopping it completely. This way, the plant’s aging process slows down but doesn’t completely stop. Don’t try to freeze them though, because stopping completely the respiratory process would have the opposite effect. And to further protect them, keep the lemons in an airtight plastic bag. Keeping lemons refrigerated will help them stay good for up to four weeks!
