Squeeze Only the Desired Amount
Many recipes call for a squeeze of lemon juice. Well, after wasting many lemons in cutting them open, I found a more thrifty way for a dab of lemon juice. Here it is.
For a small amount of fresh lemon juice, poke a hole in the lemon with a toothpick and squeeze out the desired amount.
Just put the lemon in a plastic bag in the fridge and save for the next time.

Getting More Juice Out of Lemons
Submerge lemons in hot tap water before squeezing and it will yield almost twice as much juice.
If you heat the lemon in the microwave for about a minute, you'll get more juice out of it. (10/21/2005)
If you roll it on the counter top or table first, (pressing quite hard with your hand) greater juice-yield too. (10/23/2005)

I have a lovely bowl on my kitchen table for bananas and lemons. I keep the lemons in the fridge for longer life. For better juice, I take what I'll need that day and put them in the bowl to come to room temperature. Life imitates still life. (06/03/2006)
