In The Limelight: Tips and Tricks

Unmistakable and refreshing, the flavor of lime works in many dishes outside of Mexican cuisine. Consider these tips to maximize your lime juice output and save both your taste buds and your budget.

  • When receiving limes, don’t store them on the counter! Being consistently exposed to room temperatures slowly dries out the lime and hardens the rind. Place them in an airtight container in your kitchen’s crisper to maximize shelf life.
  • Before juicing, try rolling limes on the countertop while applying slight pressure. This makes it easier for the limes to release their juice.
  • Using a juicer or reamer is the most efficient way to go, but if your limes seem dry, consider poking the flesh before juicing. This maximizes yield, as it helps to open up the membranes for juicing!
