Exclamation Good Way To Squeeze A Lime

I just saw a great idea on how to squeeze a lime or lemon. What you do is cut the lime in half as usual, then take out your tongs. Placed the lime half in the tongs towards the end where they connect and use the tongs sort of like a nut cracker. Just another reason to love your kitchen tongs

Thanks GB, I don't have a lot of strength in my hands so I had to take out the juicer every time I needed a small amount of lemon or lime juice. This will save a lot of time and be a lot easier to clean up.

I like Emeril's method of 'forking' lemons and limes.

I like a reamer, but haven't been able to find a new one. I don't know what happened to the one I had - got tossed out, I suppose. I don't have much strength in my hands either and have to use a juicer, but will try the method mentioned.

Sounds like GB has been watching "America's Test Kitchen"?

I saw that, too ... looks like a good idea. Just may have to make something like Baba Ganoush so I have a reason to squeeze some lemons.

Actually I was watching Americas Test Kitchen, but I think this was on after that show. It was still PBS though.
