Cooking tip: How to squeeze lemons without a fine mesh strainer

Trader Joe's garlic bag saves the day

Garlic bag saves the day and the pain of lemon seeds

I don’t have a fine mesh strainer, and I don’t want to lose a drop of juice to a seed-protective squeezing cloth. I was tired of digging seeds out of the lemon, always missing some and having to search for them in food.

THEN, I always missed some in the food and a mid-meal bite with the promise of being delicious came to a screeching yuck when I bit into the little lemon renegade.

Enter: The garlic bag. I was grateful to discover a good use for an item I was about to toss out.

Do you have a tip using an item in a new way? We’d love to hear about it! Please share your discoveries in the comments.
