How to Squeeze Lemons.
Hi! Here is the Betty’s Quick Tip. I need some lemon juice and you see I have a bunch of lemons here. So, it does not seem like it would be any problem to get the lemon juice but there are a couple of tips I can give you.
When you pick up your lemon, before you cut it, roll it on the counter or on your cutting board, whatever is hard, convenient. And also, you pick it up with your hand and kind of press so that the inside will liquefy. That is going to help you a lot when you get ready to squeeze the lemon and get the juice.
All right, now, place it down on your cutting board and then cut it crosswise. So, we do not want to cut it like this but we want to cut it like this. Just cut through it and that will give you two halves. And very obviously, you will see that there are seeds there. So, what I am going to do is place my container -- this is a measuring cup -- underneath and I am going to squeeze with the cut side up. That will allow the juice to run over my hand and down into the container and hopefully those seeds will stay on top. Now, if you have made one to fall in, it won’t be nearly as bad as if I go in the other direction. If I were to hold it with the cut side down, every one of those seeds would be in the juice.
So, I am squeezing as hard as I can about three times or so. You can just use your own judgment as to when you think you’ve gotten all you can get out of it and then move that away so that the seeds do not fall in.
So, this is the pulp that’s left and then I have the other one to work on and a few more over here. You can see this is how much juice I got from half a lemon. As I said, you can work on it and maybe get more juice on that but the two things I want you to keep in mind is the fact you make it easier to squeeze by rolling it first and then be sure to keep it cut side up.
