Lime juice is a great ingredient to add to drinks and meals. The only problem with using fresh lime juice is that it can be hard to get a good amount of juice from a full lime. While the easiest way to get out all of the lime juice is to use a juicer, there's also an easy, home remedy for getting the most juice out of your limes. If you have a fork and a knife, you're well on your way.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Sharp knife
  • Cutting board
  • Fork

  1. 1

    Press down on the lime and roll it around on a cutting board. It's important to soften up the lime before cutting it so that it will be easier to remove all the juice.

  2. 2

    Cut the lime in half. Don't cut the lime in half through the stem.

  3. 3

    Squeeze each half of the lime and release as much lime juice you can.

  4. 4

    Jab a fork into the inside of the lime multiple times. Keep your fingers away when you're jabbing the lime to limit the risk of jabbing your hand.

  5. 5

    Squeeze the lime one final time. Jabbing the lime with the fork will release the remaining juice inside the lime.

Tips and warnings

  • Bring the lime to room temperature before you cut the lime and extract the juice.
