A Lesson in Lemon Juice

Okay, so we might be the stupidest people on the planet, but when we bought this simple hand use juicer, it apparently perplexed us and then, miraculously, one evening we discovered the secret. It was so simple and obvious, but minorly miraculous to us that we felt we had to share:

This is what the juicer looks like:

This is where you put in the lemon and the right way to put it in:

This is the WRONG way to put the lemon in:
Counter intuitive, I know!
Simply press and watch the juice run out the holes!

You're welcome!

(PS, no matter how many people tell me these are limes, I know the truth. You only need to taste them...really, lemon all the way!)

On different, but lemon related note, a great recipe for fighting a cold is as follows:

Juice of two small lemons (or half a large lemon), 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, honey for sweetness and hot water. Take twice a day for three days and it should fix you up quite nicely. Something about the combination acts as a decongestant, the lemon gives you a hit of Vitamin C and the honey and warm water is good on the throat (should it be sore).

PS, fresh lemon juice makes way better tarts and pie than bottled stuff (this may come as no surprise to most of you, but it's my number one tip for making lemon filling). It's particularly tasty on avocado and surprisingly refreshing in tomato sauce for pasta.

You can also use lemons in your garburator to make it smell fresh. (Ice sharpens the blades, apparently.) I saw a tip on Pinterest that suggests freezing pieces of lemon in ice cubes and THEN garburating them.
