Tips and Tricks
  • *If you want to use real garlic, I recommend micro planning or using a garlic press on 1-2 cloves.
  • *Refrigerate any leftovers and eat within a week.
  • *It’s easiest to zest a lime before squeezing the juice from it.
  • *This is my favorite citrus juicer/press and my favorite garlic press (if using real garlic)- amazon affiliate links.
