How to Prepare Citrus for Juicing


    Limes in Basket  

Limes and lemons are the perfect for accenting almost everything we eat. But some basic "how-tos" are rarely discussed. So I'll share some of my thoughts on citrus preparation... leaning toward juicing primarily.

How to Knife Peel Citrus

For preparation of limes, lemons, grapefruits and oranges, I cut a small sliver from the top and bottom that shows the flesh inside. The flat surface on the ends allows the citrus fruit to sit firmly as I cut the exterior peel from top to bottom, just like peeling, but with a knife. This wastes little of the flesh and allows me to quickly prepare the citrus for juicing, segmenting sections or storing in plastic bags for use later. For the Hurom Slow Juicer, I slice limes in half to fit the feed chute.

Juice and Store Citrus

Hand juicing citrus is fine for a tablespoon here or there, but juicing with the Hurom Slow Juicer yields twice as much juice and may be frozen into cubes for use when a recipe calls for just a tablespoon. If you don't have a Hurom, there are several manual citrus juicers that are good.
