Want to see how to make them? Let me show you.

You’ll need:

Here are the simple steps (step-by-step photos are below):

  1. The lemon needs a flat surface so it will stand on it’s on, so begin by slicing a small sliver off of one end to create a flat end. Be careful not to cut al the way through the pith.
  2. Next slice a larger slice from the other end.
  3. Using the serrated knife (a grapefruit knife works perfectly), making up and down cuts, slice all the way around the inside of the pith.
  4. Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop and scrape out the inside of the lemon, being very careful to not pierce through the bottom. (Keep the lemon guts to squeeze for fresh lemonade!)
  5. If making a day or so ahead of time, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

That’s it. Now they’re ready to fill with a sweet treat.

    This is a great idea to present lemon ice-cream and it is always a hit at the family gatherings. I do the some with oranges, using them as cups for fruit jelly.
