  • 1 small bowl
  • 1 Spoon


  • 1 lemon rinsed


  • Roll lemon on hard surface to loosen membranes on inside.
  • Slice your lemon in half.
  • Squeeze your lemon with both hands over a small bowl (we usually use a Pyrex glass measuring cup with spout), rotating the lemon as you squeeze.
  • Use a spoon to scoop out any seeds from the bowl.



  1. To loosen up the lemon's inside membranes, roll your whole lemon on a hard surface prior to slicing. 
  2. Rotate your sliced lemon as you squeeze it to ensure the maximum amount of juice is extracted from each segment.
