Lemons are rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B6, vitamin A, phosphorus, iron, calcium, folate, riboflavin, magnesium, potassium, and protein. These nutrients are essential to the good function of our body and to our health.
In addition, if you want to reap all the health benefits of lemons, you should eat them with their peel, and the best way to do that is to freeze them. However, before you put them into the freezer, make sure that they are very well cleaned and dried. Once they are completely frozen, take them out from the freezer.
Once you take out the lemons out of the freezer, cut off the ends of the frozen lemons so that they become flat. Then, grind them, starting from the flat side, just like you do with a piece of cheese. This will also help you prevent slipping while you shred the lemons up.
