@Asian Recipes:
Hi, that's not a dumb question. There are several ways to get lemon juice from a lemon -


first roll the whole, uncut lemon on a clean work space by pressing firmly on it with the heel of your hand.


this will loosen up the juices inside and allow you to get more juice from the cut lemon's flesh.


To get the juice by hand: you can cut the lemon in half and hold one half in your hand, squeezing in your fist - over a sieve (this will catch the seeds that fall out with the juice.


OR if you have trouble using your hands to squeeze (such as with arthritis or if you are prone to eczema) - use a small spoon pushed into the center of the cut lemon. Hold the cut lemon firmly in once hand, while using the second hand to turn the spoon - which will loosen the juice pretty well - just repeat with the second half of the lemon.


You can also use an electric juicer - it'll make obtaining juice much easier!Lol.


Hope that helps.
Cheers!

Going to be trying this one out in the next week or so, once I can get some watercress as the store had run out. Going to try as a dip with big barbecued king prawns.

Thanks for the lemon juice tips too. Never thought of loosening the juice up before cutting.
