Juicing Tips:The best way to juice oranges and limes is with this hand-held juicer or this citrus juicer. Citrus at room temperature is easier to juice than cold citrus. Roll citrus back and forth on cutting board before cutting to release citrus.
1 orange = 1/4 cup or 2 to 3 ounces
1 lime = 2 tablespoons fresh juice (1 ounce)
