Get more out of your lemons

My dad recently passed on a bit of wisdom he'd gained only this year - how to get more juice out of your lemons.

I've tried it.

It works.

What to do:
Put your lemon/s in the microwave for a burst before cutting and squeezing.
(30 seconds for a large lemon, 20 for a medium-sized one, and I do 40 seconds for 3 smallies from our tree.)

Amazing.

Our nightly mugs of Lemon and Honey will never be the same, they'll be better.

P.S. If you don't have a microwave (e.g. my mother thinks the things are going to kill us all), then apparently rolling the lemon around on a hard surface before cutting in has a similar effect.
