When You Need Just a Little Citrus Juice, Try This Hack

Why juice a whole lemon if all you need is a teaspoon? Here’s how to get just what you need out of citrus without a lot of waste.


Roll a lemon on a hard surface, pressing on it to get the juice flowing inside. Poke a hole through the peel with a skewer, then squeeze out the amount of juice you need. The rest of the lemon is still intact and can be saved for later. This is a great technique for juicing any kind of citrus fruit and prevents a lot of waste.
