NOT REALLY A RECIPE BUT MORE OF A HOW TO... When I go to the farmers market, or fruit stands I always buy bags of lemons and limes. Living in southern Louisiana it gets very hot, and no matter how hard I tried some of them ended up spoiling " even in the refrigerator. " These can be use any way you like, and the frozen wedges of lemons and limes can be used as ice cubes. This is a wee bit messy, but once your'll have all the lemons and limes at your finger tips, that you'll need. You can also do the same thing with oranges and grapefruits.
