How to Get The Most Juice From Lemons

Here's a tip for getting the most fresh juice out of your citrus, with a kitchen tool you might not expect — the microwave!

Anyone who regularly juices lemons knows that just squeezing them right off the shelf isn't the best way to get a maximal amount of juice. Instead, heat them in the microwave on high power for about 30 seconds. Then, applying heavy pressure, roll them on the counter before slicing and squeezing. They'll be much easier to squeeze, and they'll yield more juice!
