The kind they sell in supermarkets has a chemical preservative which isn't generally available to consumers. In my experience, it's far easier to freeze lemon juice than to preserve. But if you're bent on preserving it, be prepared for quite a process!

First, squeeze all the lemons. Then you must boil the juice, let it stand to cool, then pour it into sterilized glass bottles or jars that seal to be air-tight (so jam jars work well). This will last a long time. But remember everything has to be sterilized with boiling water in order to ensure that it lasts.

Hope you have someone to help you squeeze all the lemons!

hi, The strained juice has been preserved for some time by putting it into a bottle, and pouring upon it a layer of sweet, or almond oil. The juice may be concentrated by gentle evaporation or by freezing.…

Sqeeze out the juice of the lemon add salt proportionately and you could store it in a airtight container. Keep it in the fridge compartment. Even if you keep it in the freezer compartment it will not become a cube as there is salt in it.

You could make lemonade also using it. That way you could have thick syrup made and whenever required you could add one portion of the lemonade with 3 portions of water and have a refreshing fresh lime juice.

Fresh Lemonade Syrup recipe

3 cups sugar 1 cup boiling water 3 cups lemon juice (16 lemons) 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel

Dissolve sugar in boiling water. Cool. Add lemon juice and peel, mixing well to combine. Cover and store in refrigerator up to 1 week.

To prepare lemonade for 1 serving, combine 1/4 to 1/3 cup syrup and 3/4 cups cold water in a glass, stirring well.

You can add slices of fresh lemons in the pitcher or a slice slit in the one half of a lemon slice and place it on the glass.

Use it within a week even if you store it in the refrigirator.

Lemonade Syrup recipe

Keep this syrup on hand all summer for a quick cold drink. 2 tablespoons grated lemon rind 2 cups fresh lemon juice 2 cups granulated sugar 1 1/2 cups water Mix together rind, juice and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the water, cover tightly and keep in the refrigerator. To serve, put 1/2 cup syrup in a large glass with ice, then fill with water.

Dear ,

You can take lime juice and make concentrated lime syrup for making lime juice, by adding water. See how much juice you get. For 1 cup of juice you can take 1 1/2 cups of sugar and a cup of water. Boil the water and add sugar to that. When the sugar dissolves and the scum comes over the boiling sugar syrup, strain and cool. Once it comes to the room temperature, add the lime juice, mix well. Store in airtight bottles when cool. Refrigerate and you can mix as much water as to your taste and liking. Serve cold. This stays for a longtime.

As per my friend's advise I have done this and kept for a longtime. Since I have lots of limes at my place I had to find out ways to use them. All the best

For preserving lemon juice you can use sodium benzoate as a preservative.It is available in grocery shops. Remeber anytime during the preparation (squeezing lemon or adding preservative) a single drop of water should notfall in the juice. I used to make lemon and orange squash using the same preservative. This is my experience and knowledge.
