[Return to Topics]

Last night, we went to the Roots Famer's market Produce auction near Manheim, PA. Bought 8 cases of Limes for 25 cents each. What can I do with 80 lbs of Limes???? Can I freeze the juice and pulp??? (There's only so much a person can drink in one day)

Could you be my dad's secret twin brother????

Me: "Dad, why'd you buy 80 lbs of LIMES?!?"

Dad: "They were only $2."

Me: "So? Dad, nobody around here eats them."

Dad: "Yeah, but they were only $2!"

EngineerJoyce, I sure am glad you weren't with me the day I bought an entire tractor/trailer load of small pieces of hardwood that were from a flooring mill. It only cost $125.00. I sold 2/3 of the load, used a big bunch and still have more than 3,000 pieces left.
It was only $125.00

EngineerJoyce    Posted 08-18-2004 at 11:46:25       [Reply]  [No Email] at least got some use out of it and by selling 2/3 of the load you re-couped your money (I hope!). Re-selling is acceptable.

My Dad bought 3 barns off a farm for $2000 in 1991. He used 6 of us kida and paid 3 hired hands for 2 weeks to take them down and take the parts to the farm. He even had a dozer come and level out a huge spot for his new huge combined barn (he planned to take the 3 and make a single bigger one). Today parts of those barns still set in the way of hanging tobacco and stacking hay and storing equipment inside of other barns. And the flat spot has no barn. It has served well as a spot for tobacco float trays adn a place to park those 5 scrap single wide house trailers...Another bad spend!

It's just funny to me now. I think my father still has every single piece of equipment he ever bought. And he has worn out a lot of stuff! LOL!

BTW I'm not saying Salmoneye won't get use out of his limes, or that it was a waste, it just gave me flashbacks!

I found this on a web site.....

Squeeze and pour the fresh juice of favorite citus (Meyer Lemons, Key Limes, Blood Oranges, Volcano Oranges, etc...) into an ice cube tray, then cover with plastic wrap to maintain freshness. Freeze. Once juice cubes are frozen, remove from tray and store in a zip lock plastic bag until ready to use.

Cubes can be used to make lemonade, tea, lemon meringue pie, key lime pie, vodka tonic, margaritas or any recipe that calls for lemon or lime juice.

Here is a tidbit from another website:
Storing: Whole limes can be refrigerated up to 10 days in a plastic bag. They may even last up to several weeks, but the flavor will be greatly diminished the longer they are kept. Lime slices or wedges should be bagged and refrigerated up to five days.
Freezing: Lime juice can be frozen, but not the whole fruit. Put the juice in ice cube trays. When frozen, pop them into a plastic bag, seal and store up to four months in the freezer. Grated lime zest can be frozen in a sealed plastic bag.

I like DD's idea but prefer tequila and triplesec with my limes.

Lots of "sweets" recipes out there for limes. With that many though, you'll give yourself an ulser after your second pan of Lime Squares.

You can freeze the zest, and the juice.
Usually when I freeze lemon juice some of the pulp is included and it does just fine.
I freeze it in ice cube trays;
when they are frozzen I pop them into a zip lock bag.
However, I have never frozen that quantity before.
