Meyer lemons,again please!

I have about 2 dozen of them and am wondering if I can freeze the juice and use it later to make curd. Any responses will be appreciated.

  1. I've frozen the juice for future cooking - it worked fine. I prefer Eurekas for curd, though. Meyer makes a delicate curd.

    I am wondering about making some shaker lemon pie with them...

      Yes, shaker lemon pie. Yes!
      I've also made preserved lemons with them for a change.

      1. I used to freeze mine all the time, enough in a bag for a recipe for lemon bars, oh yea baby!!!

        1. Yes you can freeze the juice. But I consider the rind the most important part, so maybe you could grate that off first using a microplane and either dry it or freeze for later use.

          1. I freeze the juice in ice cubes. Here's my favorite Meyer lemon thread.
