BakeSpace Tip:

Squeezing all the juice out of a lemon can be a lofty task.  Here’s a tip you might want to try…  roll the lemon on a hard surface, pressing down firmly with the palm of your hand to break the membranes inside the fruit. Then, cut the lemon in half. Use a wooden reamer to extract the juice into a bowl.  It’s not pretty, but it sure does the job. To catch the seeds, place a mesh strainer over the bowl. If you don’t have a wooden reamer, you can improvise by using a beater from a hand mixer… it works great!
