*How do I get more juice out of a lemon?
Sometimes you only have 2 lemons, which should be enough but if you find yourself squeezing and squeezing in vain. Here are a few tips to get the juice you need. 1. Heat those lemons up in the microwave, about 15 seconds on medium. 2. Store your lemons in the freezer. This causes the liquid to expand, breaking the cells inside the lemon. When you thaw and juice them, you'll get more out of it (especially if you thaw them in the microwave!) 3. Take a sharp knife to the fruit before you start juicing. Poke the knife into the lemon over and over, making more holes and breaking up some of the fruit's insides. When you squeeze it, there are more ways for the juice to get out. One last tip, for free—choose the heaviest and softest citrus you can. They're ripe and full of juice.
