The Frugal Frau Juices her Lemons

How now smart Frau?

How now smart Frau?

Guten Tag, you penny pinching tapasmeisters!

This week the Frugal Frau is on the juice, lemon juice to be precise. If you are fans of fresh lemon juice, as we are in our kitchen, here’s a way to keep you puckered like Renee Zellweger for a month.

The Frau advises to keep a watchful eye on the section of your produce stand Where Ageing Lemons Lie (one of my favorite Sal Mineo films).

Often, grocers will bag up older lemons that are somewhat past their cosmetic prime. These pieces of fruit, loaded with juice, can be bought at significant savings. The Frau takes those bags of lemons, juices them and pours the acidic nectar into the compartments of a plastic ice cube tray. When the juice freezes the cubes can be popped out, bagged and kept handy for whenever they’re needed. It takes but a few minutes for a frozen cube to melt or you can nuke it in the microwave.


The Frugal Frau has used ice cube trays to freeze everything from individual egg whites to homemade baby food.

Until she posts again remember the maxim of the Frau : Seid nett zueinander! (Be nice to each other.)

    How about deliciously creamy cubes of frozen breastmilk?
