Totally Lost about a recipe instruction

I was reading a recipe for dolmathes and one ingredient was

2 lemons (stained juice only)

Does anyone have a clue what in the world they were talking about? It has been many years since I have had dolmathes and later on I would like to see if I can make them and this recipe reminded me of what they tasted like, so hopefully they will turn out like the ones I had as a teen.

Well, I've never had dolmathes before, so I wouldn't know what they taste like. But, I would intrepret the listing for the lemons as the juice of two lemons, then strain the juice to remove excess pulp and/or seeds.

I agree with Allen. It looks like a typo. It probably should have read:

2 lemons (strained, juice only)

Ditto! I've made dolmathes many times - and all I did was strain the lemon juice to remove pulp and seeds. Unless there are instructions for "staining" the juice it was a typo that somebody probably didn't catch because they were relying on their spell checker ... and never realized that:
