How to extract the most juice from a lemon or lime

Although the amount of juice in citrus fruit depends on the quality and type, there are a few little tricks that will help you get more juice than usual.

Warmer weather is perfect for preparing homemade lemonade and cocktails that contain fresh lemon or lime juice and nothing is so refreshing. We will get the most juice from ripe citrus fruits, and with a few little tricks we bring you, you will squeeze the last drop of juice.

Juicers and strainer. The simplest and most effective way to squeeze citrus fruits is to use a sharper strainer or juicer. Believe it or not, strainers can also come out, so as soon as the edges become rounded, replace them with new sharp ones. A fork can be used as a strainer for first aid. Simply stick half a lemon / lime on a fork and turn / strain.

Roll the fruit. Before you cut the fruit, put it on the work surface, squeeze it with your palm and roll it back and forth to soften it and release as much juice as possible.

Microwave. Put the lemon in the microwave for 15 seconds and this way the meat will soften and release a lot more juice.

Prick the lemon with a fork. If your fruit is very dry, cut it in half and squeeze it in a juicer before squeezing it, or use a strainer to prick the meat with a fork.

Improvizujte. If your recipe requires lemon or lime juice, but the fruit is so dry that with all the tricks you can’t get a drop, simply improvise. Umetso juice in the recipe put grated crust for flavor and a little water.

Store citrus properly. Although most of us keep citrus fruits in containers on the dining table that look beautiful, that is completely wrong. Citrus fruit that stands at room temperature loses fluid slightly, so store it in a warmer part of the refrigerator enclosed in a plastic bag.
