Storing Lemons and Limes
Lemons and limes should stay fresh for about a week at room temperature if kept
out of bright sunlight. For ideal storage, place lemons and limes in the crisper drawer
of the refrigerator. They should keep for up to a month.
Storing Oranges, Grapefruits, and Pomelos
Oranges, grapefruits, and pomelos stay fresh at room temperature for about a week,
and can be stored in the refrigerator crisper for up to 2 weeks. Take the chill off
before digging in.
Ideally, tangerines should be eaten soon after purchase, but they will keep in the
refrigerator for 1 or 2 weeks.
Freezing Citrus Juice
To store the wonderfully tart juice of citrus fruits, squeeze them and pour into a
plastic container, then freeze. Lemon and lime juice can be poured into ice cube
trays. When frozen, the juice cubes can be stored for months in a plastic zip-top bag.
