How many lemons ?

How many lemons (roughly) should I buy to get a cup of juice? I know it all depends on how much they want to give off ...but can you give me a rough estimate. There is a dessert I want to make but if its going to take a lot then I'll wait till the lemons go on sale.

That's what ? Roughly 16 tablespoons or so ? I figure probably 8 lemons Sizz.
This is just a guesstimate though.

Another thought - before you juice them, make sure to put each one in the microwave for around 8 seconds. You'll get more juice.

I squeezed a cup of lemon juice for a dessert today. I used 4 big ones.

Jkath has good advise. Also if you roll with your hand and apply pressure to them on a flat surface (like you cutting board) it breaks up the inside and you get more juice.


P.S. Corazon must have big juicy lemons.YUM.
On the web sites that I looked at they said about 5-8 lemons should give you 1 cup of juice.
