My Cooking Tip # 5

Hello my dear readers,

It has been a while since I’ve posted my simple but efficient cooking tips so,

here we are, with my fifth tip in the kitchen:

Roll that citrus to get more juice out.

I know sounds silly but believe me it makes a difference.

And if you don’t believe me, try it. Squeeze a lemon without rolling it and then squeeze a lemon that you’ve rolled it first and compare the amount of juice from both.

Enjoy that citrus until the last drop, because sometimes all a dish needs is a squeeze of lemon or lime to take it to the next level.

Squeezing a lemon

Have a lovely day!

  1. I do this too! πŸ‹ Sometimes I also microwave lemons for a few seconds. It’s strange but I learned this trick from a cooking show.

      1. I think the microwaving helps to get the juices flowing in the lemon. Helps to roll them a bit before microwaving, and you only have to microwave them for a few seconds! I saw this on the Food Network years ago but I don’t remember which cooking show it was!

    1. Yes, I do the microwave trick, too! Always works a treat if they are really hard and just come out of the fridge.

  2. Most mornings I squeeze fresh lemon juice for a detox hot drink – I twist a fork into each half and squeeze to get the juice ot – never tried rolling first but will do, thanks for the tip. πŸ‹ β˜•οΈ

  3. Amazing tip, I do that a lot, Squeeze like it’s my brain πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Squeeze till it’s last drop 😸 Nisha use to complain I Squeeze and bring the juice of the skin not the lemon or orange 😁.. It’s worth doing it πŸ’ͺ Have a Lovely week Ribana βœ¨πŸ’πŸ€—

      1. Haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Not much of a helper πŸ™ˆ but I still help 😁 with the usual complaints from her ☺️ You too have a great weekπŸ’πŸ€—

  4. That’s a fantastic tip. I sometimes cut the lemon lengthwise as cutting your lemon from top to bottom can help produce a lot of juice too πŸ™‚ Aiva xxxx
