Have you ever made lemonade and thought that there should be much more juice coming out of the lemons? That’s probably because you’re cutting it wrong. Most people cut their lemons in half, squeeze a few drops out of it, and throw the rest of the lemon away.  This is wrong, even the peel of the lemon has some juice in it. All you have to do to change the amount of juice you get is to change how you cut it. 

Instead of simply cutting your lemons in half, you should first remove the top and bottom parts off. Then, cut the sides off, leaving the center of the lemon untouched and still standing. This should leave you to seven pieces; the four sides, the top, the bottom, and the middle. The top and the bottom are useless, depending on how small you cut them. If you follow the same steps, this trick works with limes, too.  In the end, you should be getting about triple the amount of juice out of limes and lemons while seasoning a dish or simply making lemonade.
