How to Juice Key Limes, Easy Peasy.

by African Frames

Key limes have a distinct flavor but can be difficult to juice because they are small and very fibrous.


Step 1

Check that the limes look fresh and bright green, not dull.

Step 2

Carefully cut in half on a slant. It's not necessary to roll the line on the cutting board to soften.

Step 3

Then carefully quarter on a slant. . Note that they are not equal sized quarters. This method bypasses the tough membranes and exposes the pulp.

Step 4

Assemble a garlic press.

Step 5

Place one segment on its side in the garlic press and squeeze.

Step 6

Key limes may not produce much liquid but their flavor more than makes up for it.

Step 7

A squeeze of the garlic press extracts more than manually squeezing the key lime.

Step 8

Store the juice in a non-reactive container and use whenever needed in recipes. Thanks for viewing. For awesome napkins, please click on
