The next time you need to squeeze a lemon, you won’t need fancy juicers or squeezers to get the most out of it. Just stab it with a fork and move it while you squeeze the lemon. It will extract all the juice, and much more easily than usual.
Madea Allen of Organic Soul Chef swears by the method and demonstrates it in the video above. She says:
In this way, you ensure that all the membranes from the lemon are getting juiced. And it gives you much more control than using a reamer or a juicer. This is just so easy, so quick, no electricity required.
It would also help to cut the lemon lengthwise rather than on the side as this gives you more juice. And if it’s not a lemon, we’ve got you covered on how to get the most juice out of any citrus fruit.
