How to Preserve Lime Juice

Squeezing juice from fresh limes can take up a lot of time. Instead of squeezing fresh juice from a lime every time you need the juice, you can preserve the lime juice in the freezer to use it later. Lime juice sold in bottles at grocery stores does not always contain the freshest ingredients, and it may contain preservatives that can alter the flavour. After you freeze the lime juice, you can remove as much as you need without having to thaw all of the lime juice at one time.

  1. 1

    Wash the limes under cool water to remove dirt and debris.

  2. 2

    Place the limes onto a cutting board. Roll the limes back and forth three to four times while pressing down firmly with the palm of your hand.

  3. 3

    Slice each lime in half along the width across the centre. Grab one-half of a lime and hold it over a measuring cup.

  4. 4

    Squeeze each half lime over a measuring cup until you remove all the lime juice.

  5. 5

    Pour the fresh lime juice into ice cube trays. Place the trays in the freezer and keep them there until the lime juice is frozen completely.

  6. 6

    Remove the lime juice ice cubes from the tray. Place the lime cubes into a plastic zipper-sealed bag. Label the bag with a date and use the oldest lime juice cubes first.

  7. 7

    Defrost the lime juice ice cubes by placing them in a bowl in the refrigerator.
