About this article
To squeeze a lemon, start by rolling the lemon back and forth on a flat surface before cutting it, which helps to loosen the juice inside. Then cut the lemon in half with a sharp knife. Take half of the lemon and keep it cut in the palm of your hand over a bowl, which prevents the seeds from falling into the bowl with the juice. Then squeeze the lemon with your hand three times and repeat with the other half. To learn how to squeeze a lemon with a tool, such as a fork or tongs, scroll down!
