View Full Version : Measuring lemons
08-11-2009, 04:55 PM
When a recipe calls for a lemon, I think one should specify how much juice to use ... The lemons off my tree are big, weighting about a pound each, measuring 4 inches by 3 inches .I get 6/8 cup of juice when I squeeze the juice out .Does anyone know how much juice you get from a normal size lemon.

I would say a quarter to a third of a cup. Maybe half if it was a huge lemon. Regular store bought ones though 1/4 to 1/3.

Thanks for helping streetsurfer........... The size reference is the golf ball that it is next to and yes the kitchen thermometer.
I agree with snoops ~ I usually count on 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) for a lemon.
It's me - but I'm pretty anal when it comes to recipes.. I like to know pretty exact measurements. I wasn't gifted with the "whip it all together and have it turn out great" gene - ha! *Ü*
