How To Juice Lemons and Limes

Here’s a great tip on how to juice lemons or limes – without a juicer!

Slice limes or lemons in half. Take one half in your hand and stick a spoon in it.

  1. This saved my life while trying to make a pitcher of mojitos… For a minute there I was about to gouge my own eyes out, just for an excuse. ;] Thanks chica!

  2. something else i’ve tried that works relatively well is after you’ve gotten most of the juice out (or at least softened the flesh), using metal kitchen tongs as a way to squeeze the last drops out. love the pics! makes me want to go squeeze a lime.
