Quick Tip: How to Juice a Key Lime

13 Jun

I set upon the task of making a key lime pie recently. I have a recipe that I really enjoyed last time, and was thankful that Fresh Direct now stocks key lime.

But then I realized that I needed to squeeze roughly 30 individual limes… and that seemed like quite the undertaking. So I went browsing through the tips to find some way to make this easier. Someone mentioned a genius solution… juice the limes with a garlic press.


It worked perfectly!

I cut all the key limes in half and then pressed them to juice them. It also meant that there were no seeds in the juice.  It could not have been easier.

And the pie?
