If you soak small lemons in blue food color and water will they turn green? You can use them to garnish the drinks of your less savvy friends and keep the real limes for yourself

Just serve lemons and tell them Vic/Berry/Jebus/etc would have wanted it that way, if they question further confiscate their drink and ban them from the bar.

Just bought some at $2.99 a pound. Same as last week. Juicy and tasty too!
Short article in Time magazine sheds reveals some logical reasons that make more sense then some of the stories/rumors that Ive been hearing.
Cheers

At our local Pavilions (and Vons) limes are 50 cents each. They were included in the "just for u" savings thing my wife signs up for and we ended up paying about $1.50 for seven limes. Should have stocked up...

Just an FYI: In this time of dire crisis, I have been working to stretch my precious limes. Now, after I cut and squeeze them, I then put both spent shells back in the squeezer together and give it one more good wring. It produces a nice extra bit of juice, though you have to turn the juicer sideways and watch out for errant squirts in every direction (watch the eyes!).

Swanky, what's your juicer of choice? I have both the large ratchet-action handheld model, plus a couple table-top "lever action" presses. Plus an electric Black & Decker juicer when I have a large volume of fruits to process. Thanks...

Times like this I thank God I live in a predominantly Mexican neighborhood where limes are considered a staple and usually cheaper than the big chains. I've been using a Citristar electric reamer if I'm making drinks for more than myself with really good results. A must if you're into grapefruit.

I have one of these for small batches.


When I need to juice a lot for big gatherings I have one of these.


For oranges and grapefruit I have a regular old juicer with a large insert.
