A slice of frozen lime? Yes, please.

I am nuts about ice cold water and tea.  And it's the icing on my cake when I can have a slice of lime floating merrily atop, giving a hint of lime to my drink.  However, I was getting tired of daily dirtying up a knife for a lime slice.  So I tried to slice the whole lime and keep it in a baggie in the fridge.

This ended up not being very satisfactory either, as the lime lost its visual appeal after a couple of days hanging out together in a baggie.  Got alittle ugly.  So one day I realized the answer to my problem.  I sliced up 2 whole limes.  Then placed them on a plate to freeze.

Into the freezer they went, uncovered, for 1-2 hours...til frozen.

Oh wow...they looked so COLD and tasty!! 

I popped them into a ziplock bag, rolled out the air in it, and zipped it closed.  Now they reside in my freezer door, ready at my beck and call.  Thirsty?  Yes!  A slice of frozen lime in your water?  Oh, yes please!

And that's how it's done.  Quick, easy, and I have enough lime slices for about 2 weeks.  Yippee!  Doesn't take much to make a girl happy.


  1. This is a great idea. I love a slice of lemon or lime in my water.


  2. Donna- That sounds like a nice way to preserve the limes so you can use them as needed. I host a recipe swap every week and I'd love for you to come by and show off a recipe or two. Have a blessed day :)
