I have two giant bottles of lemon juice that will expire in about a month (the hazards of buying bulk) and was wondering if anyone had any good recipes using lemon juice?
Thats a hard one. The couple recipes that come to mind just use a little juice but here they are anyway;
My kids like to make their own soda - we wing the amounts but here is my best guess:
2T Lemon juice
1T Lime juice
1/4 c apple juice concentrate
2 cup soda water
We also make "Zahos Sauce" . It is great on grilled chicken or we like to dip grilled pita bread as an appetizer.
1/2 c mayo
3 dashes of Tabasco
2 t yellow mustard
3 dashes paprika
1T lemon juice
1t white vinegar
1 1/2 t sugar
1T olive oil
I am sure there are some dessert recipes out there that use a lot more lemon juice! Maybe you can go to allrecipes.com and search by ingredient. I am interested in what other recipes you get!

I tend to make lemonade. Uses up lemon juice fast.
2c lemon juice
Mix with water to make a gallon.
(Or just it in half for a 2 qt pitcher. I got tired of making it and bought a big pitcher. :))
For something unique, replace the sugar with honey, though I usually cut the amount back (1 1/2 c I think) because honey is sweeter and adds a flavor. I usually put the honey in a large 4c measuring cup and pour boiling water on it to dissolve then mix it in with cold water and lemon juice. Have to let it cool longer.
Also can take lavender in a pouch and boil it with water and then use the water to make lemonade. Hmm..I haven't done that this season, I should.
I have a constant supply of frozen juice and zest in my freezer. Works like a charm. I've been doing it for the past 10 years. Every time lemons/limes go on sale I buy as many as I possibly can, juice them, freeze in small containers, then double bag in ziplock bags and keep in my freezer. Ditto for zest.
Some other cooks in this Forum gave me great instructions for making Avgolemeno, the Greek soup featuring chicken broth, orzo, eggs, and lemon juice . . . .you could search for it under that name here in this forum, or look in the PBS Recipes file . . . . it's delicious.

Here's a recipe that'll use up 2 cups at a time:
2 cups sugar
In a sauce pan over low heat, cook and stir sugar and water until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. Pour into freezer container. Freeze for 4 hours, stirring every 30 minutes or until mixture becomes slushy. Sprinkle servings with lemon peel. Yield 6 servings.
Haven't tried it yet myself, but I LOVE lemon ices and plan to try it soon.
