Q: Like all stereotypical Brits, I enjoy a slice of lemon with my afternoon cup of Earl Grey or evening G&T. However, as much as I'd like to drink an entire lemon's worth of each in a single sitting, it isn't practical and is socially frowned upon. How can I keep a lemon juicy, fresh and delicious once I've sliced into it?

It seems awfully wasteful to use up a whole lemon for two cups of tea or one cocktail!

Editor: I usually put the leftover lemon in a Ziploc bag and stash it in the fridge. You can also squeeze the juice and either refrigerate it for a few days or freeze it in ice cube trays.

Readers, what suggestions do you have?
