You'll Never Squeeze Lemons the Same Again by Jesse Bluma

You'll Never Squeeze Lemons the Same Again

Celebrity chefs often tell audiences to squeeze lemons, limes, and other citrus in their hands.  If you happen to have hands of steel from years of cooking in a professional kitchen, then you will not feel a sting.  

If you do not have or do not want to bring out a large juicing machine, press, or have a squeezer handy this method will do the trick.  This method is a very simple and handy trick.  Using a zip bag prevents hurting your hands, losing juice, saving unused juice, and the bag can be cleaned and dried well for future use. 


1.  Poke citrus with a fork and microwave for 15 to 30 seconds, this will make juicing easier.  Wait to juice if too hot.  

2.  Slice lemon, lime, or other citrus in half on a cutting board.

3.  Open the baggie and place the citrus inside.  

4.  Use a fork, reamer, or handheld squeezer inside the bag to juice the fruit.

5.  Remove any seeds from the juice with spoon.
