The Lime Cutting Hack That Makes Sure You Get All Of The Juice
A medium-sized lime typically contains around 2 tablespoons of juice, but if you don't cut this fruit right, you might miss out on a teaspoon or two.
To extract every drop of lime juice, slice the lime lengthwise instead of across its diameter, and remove the core before squeezing.
Don't cut the lime straight through the center; opt for a slightly off-center cut. Then, slice the larger half in half lengthwise once more to remove the core from the center.
You should have three sections of lime when you are finished. Removing the core makes the line more flexible so you can squeeze it more, resulting in more juice.
