Check that the limes look fresh and bright green, not dull.
Carefully cut in half on a slant. It's not necessary to roll the line on the cutting board to soften.
Then carefully quarter on a slant. Note that they are not equal sized quarters. This method bypasses the tough membranes and exposes the pulp.
Assemble a garlic press.
Place one segment on its side in the garlic press and squeeze.
Key limes may not produce much liquid but their flavor more than makes up for it.
A squeeze of the garlic press extracts more than manually squeezing the key lime.
Store the juice in a non-reactive container and use whenever needed in recipes. Thanks for viewing. For awesome napkins, please click on http://goo.gl/wRi61C
