How to Make Extract the Most Juice from Citrus Fruits


  1. Trick #1: First, the fruit has to be at room temperature
  2. Trick #2: Roll fruit back and forth on the counter applying heavy pressure with the heel of the hand. This will help to burst the segments inside. This is a good one to use when we need a little bit of juice
  3. Trick #3: Another method is to place citrus fruit in a bowl of hot water from the tap (not boiling) and let it sit for about 1 minute which will redistribute the juice.
  4. Trick #4: Another one is the microwave. Place your citrus fruit in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 15 to 30 seconds on High (depending on the size of the fruit; i.e. lime is about 15-20 seconds, lemon between 20 to 25 and orange about 25 to 30 seconds). This is great especially when you need to extract as much juice as possible.
  5. Trick #5: Of course, here's the obvious method... a juicer! There are three to choose from; one is a manual citrus juicer with the reamer. There's the hand held press juicer and the other is a power juicer.
  6. Trick #6: And last but not least is using a fork on the flesh of half of fruit and moving back and fork twisting the utensil.
