If you want to learn how to make lemon juice, you need just three ingredients – lemon, sugar, and water. It’s a simple recipe but a handy one. This is because lemon juice has amazing health benefits including the ability to relieve dehydration, clear the skin, treat an upset stomach, cleanse the liver, and even treat cancer.
Cut the lemon lengthwise to extract the maximum juice.
You can use a lemon squeezer or a hand-held juice press to juice the lemon. Otherwise, you can juice the lemon the old-fashioned way with a fork. Make sure you do this over a strainer to catch the bitter lemon seeds.
Add a cup of water and mix well. Your lemon juice is ready!
If you want to sweeten your lemon juice, you can add sugar or honey as per taste. Adding a pinch of salt to lemon juice helps to heighten the sour flavor of the fresh juice.
If you want to extract the maximum juice from a lemon, you can choose a heavy lemon and slightly roll it under your palm on a counter to loosen the fruit. You can also stick it in a microwave for 20 seconds just before juicing it to make it softer.
