Lemons - Hints and Tips
To extract more juice, keep lemons at room temperature, not in the fridge.
To get the maximum juice, roll them between your hands or place in the microwave on high power for 10 seconds before squeezing.
Use the fine side of the grater for recipes needing lemon rind or invest in a zester, which produces threads.
Grate the rind straight into the ingredients so that none of the skin oils will be left behind on the plate.
For instant wedges, slice or cut a lemon, then open freeze. Store in polythene freezer bags. This makes great ice cubes for gin and tonic. Try this with other citrus fruits, as well.
