Here’s a handy tip from my lovely Mum (thanks Mum!) on how to juice a lemon.
Whenever you need lemon in a recipe, isn’t it always a pain? Trying to stop the pips going in to the bowl, whilst getting all the lemon juice out is a pain! Yes, I could buy a lemon juicer, but you don’t need one – there’s a really simple hack to juicing a lemon!
Pierce a hole in the top of the lemon, and pop it in the microwave for about 60 seconds (check, if it’s not too hot to touch, try again for another 10 seconds at a time). When it’s really hot, set the bowl aside and let the lemon cool down.
Then, just tip the lemon upside down and squeeze – easy!!
