Squeeze Lemon
Squeeze Lemon? Is this the task given to you by your mom or wife every time you land up in kitchen by chance? And then you are questioned about wasting the lemon half squeezed. Isn’t it? If yes, then here is a simple to make your task simpler.

This small but useful tip is about squeezing the maximum lemon juice.

It is one of the everyday task in our Kitchen and we normally use the Lemon extractor. But this tip is for scenarios where we do not have the extractor available or the size of the Lemon is too big to fit into the extractor.

I faced the latter situation when i bought Lemons in USA. The size here is much bigger and the i did not have the extractor for them. Also, my muscle power could only extract half of the juice and rest was wasted. So, i tried using a Fork to find if it can help me extract some more of the usually wasted piece of Lemon and it looks like it works! It would be interesting to know how you do it when you do not have the lemon extractor.

    I find that microwaving them for 30 seconds makes a big difference in how easy they are to squeeze, and thus how much juice I get from them.
