Tip of the Day: How to pick a JUICY lime/lemon?

When trying to pick a juicy lime or lemon, look at its skin; make sure it’s thinner and smoother than other limes’ or lemons,’ and is neither bumpy nor hard. To get the most juices out of those limes or lemons, microwave on high for 20-30 seconds, remove and let stand for a few minutes before cutting and squeezing. With minimal pressure, you can also pound the lime or lemon on a clean countertop or cutting board until softens before cutting.
