      I have now used some of this and found that the lemons, after packing tichtly in the mason jar, were not as juicy as they should have been. I think by packing them so tightly in the jar a lot of the juice was lost. Will see if any of the others are different when I use them next time.

      I've made (and now used!) some of these lemons, and they worked brilliantly! I used some chopped into couscous with coriander, chilli and olives

      I favor limes in so many dishes that I actually split this recipe into 2 halves & made it for both lemons & limes. Mine came out of the freezer a couple of dys ago & are in jars awaiting my creative inspiration.
