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.
I always roll a lemon or a lime before squeezing it. My mother in law taught me this.
It’s good to not waste any drop of it 😉
So I’ve heard. (Will do.)
Try it too, you’ll see the difference 😉
I do this too! 🍋 Sometimes I also microwave lemons for a few seconds. It’s strange but I learned this trick from a cooking show.
Hi Hilary, nice to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re doing well! Microwaving lemons? That’s new! It helps with squeezing or?
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!
Thanks Hilary! Always good to know 😉
Yes, I do the microwave trick, too! Always works a treat if they are really hard and just come out of the fridge.
That’s always good to know! I never tried it but next time will do 😉🍋
Haven’t heard that one before!
It really is a thing! 😂 It’s a good hack that works! 🍋
When life gives you lemons…
Make microwaved lemonade lol
Hahaha 😝 That’s new 🍋😉
Try it! You’ll be amazed 😉 🍋
Cool. Would try it.
😉 Roll and squeeze that lemons 🍋😉

Though I have come across it before but it’s good to have a reminder.
Thank you. Yes, always good to have a reminder when needed 😉

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. 🍋 ☕️
Try it! Is always good to squeeze the juice out until the last drop 😉 Happy mornings 😉☀️
Will do, every drop is precious 😊 best wishes 🤗✨
Very true 😉🍋 Thank you! 🤩🌸
Amazing tip, I do that a lot, Squeeze like it’s my brain 😂😂. 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 💪 Have a Lovely week Ribana ✨💐🤗

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 🙂 Aiva xxxx
Haha 😉 That’s a very good tip too 😉 Thank you 😉
So true, we do that all the time. Everyone should try this tip 🙂
Thank you! There are little tips that can be very useful 😉
I think so too!
I always roll my lemon. My Grandmother used to do it and I followed in her footsteps. 🙂
We had a lot to learn from our grandmothers 😉😍 They had a lot of tricks 😉
Hiiii Yes, they did 🙂
Totally agree with you 😽😊
Thank you 😉
I have always rolled all citrus’s but especially limes and lemons, makes them easier to cut also.
I’m glad to know that this little trick is useful to so many people 😉🍋
I’m glad you like it! Thank you!
