I am a firm believer that fresh lemon and lime juice is better than juice from a bottle any day of the week. After years of sqeezing lemons and limes to get fresh juice for recipes, I learned a trick a little while ago that literally gets you twice as much juice when squeezing. It's simple really.....
Instead of cutting the lime in half, you cut it into thirds!
I had planned on showing you with lemons, but it turns out I only had limes in my fridge. So we're going with limes instead. I"ll show you both ways, and you can decide for yourself which way is more effective.
Here we are with two limes. One cut in half, and the other in thirds.
Now, squeeze those babies! For the sake of our little experiment, I juiced each lime separately, to compare how much juice each method gave me.
The difference was pretty significant!
The lime cut in half yielded 1 Tbsp + 3/4 tsp
The lime cut in thirds yielded 2 1/2 Tbsp!!!
That is more than double!!!!
Now, go get squeezing all the lemons and limes in your fridge! It really is that fun.
