I did some recipe with lime recently and I thought I should share my tips about How to extract the most Juice from a Lime without a juicer. I do not have a juicer at home and my technique is really simple. I am using a fork.
1. Roll the lime on a hard surface
I usually roll the lime between my hand on the bench top but if there are really hard I am using my feet on the floor. I know what you think right now. Yuck! But I am obviously not doing that after a 30 minutes run or if I am going to use the zest of the lime.
2. Cut crosswise
The membrane inside the fruits will be harder to break if you cut the lime crosswise but you will get more juice. If the membrane are too hard cut through them with a knife.
3. Use a fork
That is the trick! using a fork as a reamer. Pick the fork onto the half lemon. Hold firmly in one hand, squeeze and turn the fork at the same time. The juice will easily come through. You see, no need to buy a reamer or a juicer! We all have forks in our kitchen.
