Getting the Most Out of a Lime

We’ve all experienced the great annoyance of buying limes that looked beautiful at the market only to get home and find that they’re dried up. A good technique to getting the most juice out of a lime is to either microwave the lime for about 20 to 30 seconds or run it under hot water for a minute, then roll it around firmly with the palm of your hand on a cutting board. This yields a spectacular amount of juice from good limes and at least something out of a bad one. Save your taste buds and stay far away from all the pre-bottled versions, they’re just not a good substitute.
