Lemons and limes have lots of uses inside and outside the kitchen. Here are a few practical tips on how to "maximze" their use:

  • Six medium lemons yield 1 cup of juice; 1 medium lemon produces 3 tablespoons of juice or 3 teaspoons of grated peel.
  • Six to eight medium limes yields 1/2 to 2/3 cup of juice; one medium lime equals about 1&1/2 tablespoons of juice and 1&1/2 teaspoons of zest.
  • In most recipes, lime juice can be substituted for lemon juice.
  • Squeeze lemon on avocado and potato slices to prevent discoloration.
  • Clean copper with a paste of lemon juice and salt; rinse and polish dry.
  • Rub hands with a lemon wedge to remove fish, onion and garlic odors.
  • Shine piano keys or other ivory objects with half a lemon or a lemon-salt paste; rinse with a clean, wet cloth, then buff.
  • When cooking pasta without salt, squeeze lemon juice into the boiling water to add zip.
  • Vegetables come alive with a squeeze of lemon instead of salt.
  • Brighten hair with a strained lemon juice-warm water rinse; rinse again in clear water.
