Kitchen Tips Tuesday: How to Get More Juice From Citrus Fruits


When using citrus for cooking, it’s important to extract as much juice as possible from the fruit.
Here’s all the juicy details to help you get the most from your citrus fruits.

Lemons and limes can sometimes be very firm, and hard to juice. Placing them in the microwave for about 10 seconds or so, softens them and brings out the juice. Be careful when you cut into them, the juice can get hot!

Rolling the fruit on the counter before cutting is another way to release the juices. Use firm pressure as you roll the fruit before cutting.


This little kitchen gadget makes juicing super easy. Just place the cut fruit into one side of the cup, and squeeze! It allows the juice to pass through, keeping excess pulp and seeds inside.
