Dearesy Lemonologists,

As a sheepy I of course luff lemon..out of all the yellow citrus fruits that look and taste and are called lemons...Lemons are my all time fave !!

I recently watched Rick Stein cook something with a lemon and he vowed that when ewe roll a lemon thusly.....

A Lemon Being Rolled Thusly

.......that it will produce more juice when halved and squeezed !

Don't be fooled !!..it is a real lemon pretending to be a Satsuma !

So, what's the science behind rolling a lemon to get more juice from it ?

Ewe see, in the field of knowing stuff about fruits and their juices this morsel of knowledge is missing from my database and I need to know !

Hugs & shmishes


mwah mwah

Because it gathers no moss to soak it up?
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Maybe he was using a steam roller. I'm sure that would do it.
