To get the most juice from a lemon, start by rolling it on a work surface under your palm a few times, or can also microwave it for 10 seconds, before cutting it in half. A juicer or handheld reamer will help release more juice than a simple squeeze. A thin-skinned lemon should yield about 3 tablespoons juice.
Thin-skinned lemons have more juice and fewer seeds. Look for round lemons that give slightly when pressed and are heavy for their size.
