A few other easy solutions to enjoy your excess citrus:
- zest the fruit and freeze the zest in a small container. Use it in future recipes.
- after zesting, juice the fruit and make a simple syrup for fun cocktails or to make a citrus sorbet.
- freeze the juice in ice cube trays and drop the flavored cubes into smoothies or your water bottle for an instant pop of citrus.
- Stir juice and zest into mayo along with a minced garlic clove to make a tangy aioli. Spread on sandwiches, toss in pasta salad or serve with vegetables like asparagus and broccoli.
