My house (unless I'm making huge batches, then Nellie & Joe's for lime juice).

Lime juice for sure at the Mai-Kai, and at the Hideaway.

The 'Ona 'Alu'alu...I've definitely helped prepare/hand-squeeze juices there on a few occasions.

AND - the future "The Grotto" will feature hand-squeezed fruit juices guaranteed - old school Filipino Poly-Pop style all the way, brothers and sisters......old school all the way.

Someone needs to grow a giant lime...like size of a grapefruit...now that would make juicing easier. I finally bought an electric citrus juicer...nothing fancy, but will try to make some fresh lime juice for my next party.

Is it acceptable to squeeze a batch and freeze it in small portions for later use (like in ice cube trays)? Just askin'

Mike, I don't think that really counts as fresh squeezed juice. Isn't that the same as using frozen concentrate? I fear that some classic old-school places here in So Ca have gone new-school with that approach. I'd name names but I already catch too much heat as it is. FYI, it ain't DTBC or Tonga Hut.

One thing I do that I think helps keep the lime juice "fresh" for a while longer is to strain it when I bottle it. I have a strainer in my funnel. That pulp if part of what can send the juice south on you.

I use my juice for at least a week out of the fridge, and sometimes longer. Never had an issue.

But, what do I know? Could be just as long lasting with the little bits in it.

Be glad when lime prices get back down. 60-80 cents each has been crazy. Used to be 4 for a dollar...

Wow. Wish I paid that much for limes. At the moment they are about 60 cents each but depending on the season sometimes they can cost me up to $4 each.

Anyone try using a juicer for lemons & limes . . . peel & all? I know you have to peel the orange part off an orange, but what about lemons & limes? Will they be too bitter to use in drinks?
Just wondering.

Industrial juicers (bars using fresh squeezed juice use them) squeeze the whole citrus, rind and all.
